Ukraine can expect to return at least half of the Latvian assets of Yanukovych, — GPU

«According to estimates of various experts from Ukraine were withdrawn 30-40 billion dollars in less than 4 years of Board of Yanukovych. I can say that as of today, not one penny of these funds are not returned to the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian budget», — said the head of the Ministry of justice.

He recalled that the Ukrainian authorities arrested the Bank accounts of 1.5 billion dollars from the assets of Yanukovych, but the money cannot be directed to the budget due to the lack of legislation on civil special confiscation.

The Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin said that the Ukrainian side can expect to return at least half of the assets of former President Viktor Yanukovych from Latvia.

The TV channel «112 Ukraine» ENIN said that next week the head of GPU , Yury Lutsenko will travel to Latvia to show evidence to substantiate the refund of Yanukovych in Ukraine.

According to him, the overall return on assets may be 5-10 years.

«Of course, we do not have time to return the money before the end of the year. This means that next year we have to negotiate with the Latvian side that they laid in the draft law, its budget to invest in it expenses, these money back, or at least parts thereof in Ukraine. I think we can count on at least 50% of the specified amount,» said ENIN.

Earlier it was reported that a court in Latvia confiscated 50 million euros in favor of their country’s theft from the state budget of Ukraine and money laundering through Latvian banks. This amount coincides with that of the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s office is incriminated to Sergey Arbuzov.

In Latvia said that Ukraine will be able to return these funds if he can prove their Ukrainian origin and that they were acquired by criminal means.

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko appealed to the President of Latvia Raimonds Vejonis with a request to facilitate the return to Ukraine of the seized items.
