“EU ambassadors agreed to continue freezing the assets of Yanukovych and 14 (man – “GORDON”) from his environment for a year. Ivanyushchenko excluded,” wrote Jozwiak.

Yanukovych earlier urged the EU to lift all sanctions with it. According to him, the EU “effectively closed” him “access to a possible political solution to the crisis in Ukraine.”

Also recall that recently the Supreme Court of Ukraine has closed all criminal cases against Yuriy Ivanyushchenko.
