“A separate topic of today’s discussion is the funds of criminal origin, associated with ex-officials of Ukraine, which was withdrawn in Latvian banks from Ukraine. Here we set the active bilateral cooperation. This concerns the question of asset recovery, on which there is a relevant court decision, and identify other assets that could be illegally taken out of Ukraine to Latvia”, – he said.

Responding to a question about whether it would be brought to an end the process of return of these seized funds to Ukraine, the President of Latvia Egils Levits said that there is a certain procedure.
