"Not all the former people in power hid their money abroad. We started the criminal proceedings against the former head of the National Bank and the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, and blocked the accounts in Ukrainian banks in which his securities kept.

There are state bonds on the amount of 1 billion 800 million only in dollar terms and also bonds worth 1 billion 200 million UAH arrested," Bahanets said at a press briefing on Wednesday, June 18.
