The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine (PGO) has information about a meeting in Russia between representatives of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, former First Deputy Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov and businessman Serhiy Kurchenko, who discussed ways to counteract the progress of investigations by the PGO into the criminal activities of the Yanukovych regime, Deputy Prosecutor General Yevhen Yenin has said.
"Following the meeting, the fugitives agreed on steps to discredit the progress of the investigation on the case of the UMH holding, oil rigs, special confiscation through information reports through a number of media outlets under their control," he wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
According to him, investigation has currently reached the "holy of holies" - operations with correspondent accounts of Ukrainian banks in European and other countries and the legalization of stolen budget funds and other assets obtained by criminal means.
"Despite this, the Prosecutor General's Office hopes, together with our international partners, to achieve further significant results in the return of assets to Ukraine's budget this year," Yenin said.
