Yanukovych has denied his involvement in the confiscation of assets

The European Commission and public authorities in Western countries have confirmed the absence in their territory of money and assets of Viktor Yanukovych, said his press service.

The advocates of the British legal company Joseph Hage Aaronson LLP representing the interests of Viktor Yanukovych called false information confiscated from the accounts of Cypriot companies money, allegedly belonging to the ex-President of Ukraine. This reports the press service of Viktor Yanukovych on Monday, may 13.

“Ukrainian officials are constantly making false statements about the mythical Bank accounts and assets of Viktor Yanukovych abroad. At the same time, the European Commission and state bodies of other countries, including Switzerland, have officially confirmed a lack in their territories of any of the funds or other assets belonging to Viktor Yanukovych,” – said in a statement.

It is also noted that the statement of the Deputy Minister of justice in the Executive service Svetlana Glushchenko seized 55 million UAH and one million dollars from the accounts of Cypriot companies, allegedly owned by Yanukovych and his entourage, “is another lie and a provocation.”

We will remind, in February, Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko reported about the confiscation of 1.5 billion UAH, which will be used to support the army.

According to Lutsenko, Yanukovych’s money was kept for 100 accounts. As explained by the attorney General, these funds are stolen in different ways on the territory of Ukraine, are derived from the country through a number of offshore jurisdictions and fell in the “global sink”.

At the same time, the lawyers of Yanukovych, denied any involvement in the forfeited funds.
