Swiss Prosecution Freezes Viktor Yanukovych's Assets
Switzerland's federal prosecutor has frozen USD 193.34M of assets in Swiss bank accounts belonging to former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych and people close to him.
At the end of February, the assets of 20 Ukrainians, including Yanukovich, were frozen. In March, Switzerland added the names of nine more Ukrainians to the list of people concerned by the measures.
Switzerland's federal prosecutor had opened five investigations against individuals suspected of money-laundering and the assets it had frozen in that context were partly identical with those concerned by the government freeze, Voice of Russia informs, citing Swiss media reports.
The political situation in Ukraine has been highly unstable with dozens of people dying in riots on Friday in Odessa.
