More than 500 kg of gold stolen and taken out of Ukraine by cronies of fugitive president Viktor Yanukovych have been arrested in cooperation with a European country.

Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin told Insider in an interview, Censor.NET reports.

"Several weeks ago, in cooperation with a European country, we received information about a big batch of gold arrested. More than half a ton," Yenin said answering a question about assets stolen during Yanukovych tenure.

A total amount of damage caused by the Yanukovych regime is about $40 billion. $1.5 billion have been arrested in Ukraine and returned to the state treasury, Yenin said.

He added that a total of $200 million of assets belonging to Yanukovych cronies have been arrested in various European countries.

"It's too early to say that we have lost the possibilities to find more assets stolen by the Yanukovych regime," the prosecutor said.

Earlier, Prosecutor General's Office showed a document proving that $1.1 billion confiscated from Yanukovych were returned to the state budget.
