First part of $200 mln seized from Yanukovych entourage transferred to budget
The first part out of the $200 million of the entourage of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, seized under a court ruling, has been transferred to the state budget, spokeswoman for Ukraine's prosecutor general Larysa Sarhan has said.
"A special confiscation of 200 million [dollars] of Yanukovych's OCG [organized criminal group]. The first millions have come to the state budget," she wrote on her Facebook page on Monday.
Sarhan told Interfax-Ukraine that "the prosecutor general provided the court decision to the Ukreximbank head and he fulfilled it."
On September 22, 2017, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko wrote on Facebook that the court ruling of the Sosnivsky district court of Cherkasy on the special confiscation of $200 million of funds of the organized criminal group of Yanukovych had come into force.
