«Vitaliy KASKO said that dismissed from the Prosecutor General’s office and immediately went hysterical noise, supposedly the last hope of the nation ate of the cursed corrupt. I also agree that his dismissal is a disgrace. Only for other reasons: he had to leave not his resignation, and in jail. In fact it is official that in Ukraine after the Maidan was responsible for the return of assets of Yanukovych and his servants, and it is obvious that in this field we have the biggest failure,» said Chornovol.
According to her, KASKO only had mechanisms that allowed you to do specific things in the field of asset recovery, he also directed the interdepartmental Commission on the return of assets.

«Through Latvian banks to rotate money in schemes Kurchenko. And for the last two years of the Yanukovych presidency, the turnover of companies Kurchenko was 10 million US dollars a day. Regular were the payments for 25-35 million dollars a single transfer. Payments were Arbuzov, Zlochevsky, Ivanyushchenko, Stavisky and even the Swiss company … That is, the material from Latvia was able to fill the gaps in a number of criminal cases initiated in Ukraine regarding the «former,» — said Chornovil.
«Obviously that’s why KASKO is not organized the transfer of the case in Ukraine. And blocked when it tried to do to bypass it,» he added.
According to Chornovil, Deputy attorney General resigned now, because he knows now to catch up on 10 March to adopt it is almost impossible.
As reported today, 15 February, KASKO resigned. In his words, «the last straw was yet another redistribution of the work of the GPU».
