on social media

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt
said on March 10 that experts from the FBI, the Department of Justice and
Department of Treasury “are working with their Ukrainian counterparts to
support the Ukrainian investigation… to uncover the financial crimes that were
committed by the previous regime and to see what can be done to recuperate some
of those assets (stolen from the state).”

Meanwhile, on March 6 the British government
said that a task force led by the National Crime Agency has sent “UK experts in
financial intelligence, money laundering and tracing criminal assets…to Kyiv to
help the Ukrainian government recover misappropriated assets.”

An alleged insider businessman and 32
former senior officials
, including Yanukovych and his two sons, Oleksandr
and Viktor Yanukovych Jr., have had their assets frozen in the European Union,
and separately, in The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Lichtenstein, Latvia,
the U.S. and Canada.
