EU SANCTIONS IMPOSING ASSET FREEZES ON 18 UKRAINIANS INCLUDE OUSTED LEADER YANUKOVYCH, AIDES

FoxNews on March 5, 2014, published an AP report that the European Union says the asset freezes it has imposed against 18 people held responsible for embezzling state funds in Ukraine include the country’s ousted President Viktor Yanukovych. Excerpts below:

The list includes what appear to be Yanukovych’s closest aides, including a former interior minister, justice minister, the prosecutor general, the head of the security services and Yanukovych’s son.

The sanctions also target former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and his son.

The EU said on March 5 it was freezing assets of Ukrainian officials held in the EU but did not name them pending the publication in the official legal journal.
