According to the State Bureau of Investigation, another $ 4.5 million of dubious assets of the former People’s Deputy of Ukraine from the Party of Regions, close to the family of fugitive ex-president Viktor Yanukovych, has been seized.

The Bureau works daily to fill the state budget, primarily for the needs of the Armed Forces.

According to the Bureau, the former regional, together with the fugitive president's entourage, "laundered" and legalized abroad the proceeds from one of the powerful concerns in the temporarily occupied territory of Donetsk.

After creating the Russian terrorist organization DPR, the attacker retained de facto control over the pharmaceutical industry and cooperated with the occupation administration. He registered a company in the temporarily occupied Horlivka, the mayor of which was his former bodyguard.

In addition, it was recorded that the executor accumulated on deposit accounts opened with Ukrainian banks $ 4.5 million, which have dubious and unconfirmed sources of origin. The funds can be linked to Russian capital and used to finance aggression.

The State Bureau of Investigation established these accounts and took appropriate measures to seize the assets.

It will be recalled that the ex-deputy's property worth over UAH 200 million was seized earlier and $ 192,000 in cash was seized.

The pre-trial investigation under Part 4 of Art. 110-2 (Financing of actions committed to forcible change or overthrow of the constitutional order or seizure of state power, change the boundaries of the territory or state border of Ukraine) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and Part 3 of Art. 436-2 (Justification, recognition as lawful, denial of armed aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The Office of the Attorney General provides procedural guidance.
