Ukrainian PM calls on deputies to urgently vote for confiscation of assets stolen by Yanukovych regime
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has accused lawmakers of supporting former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Since MPs did not vote for a bill which would see Yanukovych's stolen assets confiscated, Yatsenyuk believes they are supporting the disgraced president:
"Who out of all the democratic parties is standing behind Yanukovych's circle and not allowing to return to the Ukrainian people the stolen money? It's not one thousand dollars it's one and a half billion dollars. It can be compared to the sum being sent as assistance by the US," Yatsenyuk said.
The Ukrainian premier then passed on additional information on the whereabouts of Yanukovych's offshore bank accounts. Yatsenyuk is calling on the parliament to pass the law on stolen asset confiscation.
