The restrictions against ousted Ukrainian President were imposed after Maidan revolution in 2014
The European Union Court is holding a session this Friday April 29 regarding sanctions against former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his son Oleksandr. The judges are hearing the testimony of all participants of the case.
According to Ukrainian media outlet Yevropeyska pravda, the verdict will not be delivered after the session. It is expected to be announced during the next several months.
The E.U. court also will hold sessions on the sanctions against Sergiy Kluyev, former Ukrainian MP and a close ally of Viktor Yanukovych.
Earlier the European judges ordered to lift economic restrictions from Andriy Portnov, ex-deputy head of the Yanukovych's Presidential Administration. The court decided Ukraine failed to provide evidences that confirm Portnov's guilt.
The sanctions against former Ukrainian politicians were imposed by Ukraine and the E.U. in 2014 after the events of the Maidan Revolution. These persons were suspected of corruption and human rights violations.
