The prosecutor's office asked the court to freeze the assets of runaway Yanukovych, namely a house, a flat, two garages, two lots in semi-subterranean parking and a brig (a sailing vessel with two square-rigged masts) built in 2000.
Yanukovych is suspected of committing crimes under part 1, article 111 (high treason), part 5, article 27, part 3, article 110 (aiding in deliberate acts aimed at altering the territory and the state border of Ukraine in violation of the procedure stipulated by the Constitution of Ukraine), and part 5, article 27, part 2 article 437 (aiding in waging a war of aggression) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Articles 110 and 111 provide for applying additional form of punishment (seizure of property). The prosecution asked the court to seize the assets of the former president by prohibiting the alienation and disposal of this property.
The motion has been upheld in full.
