The Kyiv Court of Appeals has agreed with the arguments of the prosecutor and upheld the seizure of UAH 2.3 million, belonging to ex-Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov, placed in PJSC Oschadbank.
According to the PR department of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine (PGO), the State Financial Monitoring Service of Ukraine revealed another account opened by former Prime Minister Azarov in Oschadbank. The PGO established that Azarov accumulated funds in the amount of UAH 2.3 million on the specified account.
