 Tymoshenko's Lawyer Hopes the EU will Arrest the European Assets of the Yanukovych Family

Yulia Tymoshenko’s lawyer Sergey Vlasenko informed that the United Opposition addressed the corresponding law enforcement agencies of various EU countries regarding the investigations of numerous corrupted deals conducted by the high-ranking politicians of Ukraine.

At his press-conference in LigaBusinessInform he reminded that the US Congress has a set of draft resolutions regarding various sanctions against the Ukrainian authorities for violating the basics of democracy in Ukraine.


Vlasenko specified that it regards to the creation of a list, similar to the so-called Magnitskiy List, as well as freezing the assets of Yanukovych family in the US. "I really hope that this resolution will be accepted in the nearest future. As to Europe, the situation is a bit different. Yulia Tymoshenko as a leader of the United Opposition has appealed to corresponding law enforcement agencies of various EU countries regarding the investigations of numerous corrupted deals, conducted by the high-ranking politicians of Ukraine. Particularly, she regards to the so-called privatization of Ukrtelekom (telecommunications giant) by Yanukovych's clan, Boyko platforms (the corruption scandal with buying drilling platforms for the amount several times over it price), mass corruption during the construction in preparation for Euro-2012 as well as illegal privatization of Mezhygirya residence. I hope that during the investigation of this corruption (the profits from which went to Europe) the law enforcement agencies of the European countries will start the relevant criminal cases as well as will begin arresting the European asset of the Yanukovych family.
