Prosecutor General Lutsenko reports on return of over $500,000, withdrawn from Ukraine during presidency of Yanukovych

"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the funds that were embezzled by the former leadership of the Justice Ministry during the presidency of Yanukovych and withdrawn from Ukraine by signing of a fictitious agreement on provision of services with one of U.S. firms," Yuriy Lutsenko wrote on his Facebook page.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.
