"Today the department for international legal cooperation of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justice ensured the return to Ukraine of more than $500,000. These are the funds that were embezzled by the former leadership of the Justice Ministry during the presidency of Yanukovych and withdrawn from Ukraine by signing of a fictitious agreement on provision of services with one of U.S. firms," Yuriy Lutsenko wrote on his Facebook page.

He added that the PGO continues to carry out a pre-trial investigation within the criminal proceedings regarding the crimes under Part 1 of Article 366, Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
