According to the competent authorities of the Swiss Confederation, an account was determined to which, according to the investigation, illegally obtained funds were transferred, as well as account of an enterprise controlled by the criminal organization in the territory of this state. The funds in the amount of $2 million were frozen on the abovementioned accounts at the request of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General&#39;s Office," reads the report. As UNIAN reported earlier, in May 2018, Ukraine imposed personal sanctions against the ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych&#39;s ally, young energy tycoon Serhiy Kurchenko, as well as persons who hold offices as "energy ministers" in the self-proclaimed "DPR" and "LPR", and Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller. In May 2014, Ukraine&#39;s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said the companies that were part of Serhiy Kurchenko&#39;s EEFEC (Eastern European Fuel-Energy Company) had imported to Ukraine over 5 million tonnes of oil products worth UAH 36 billion under fictitious documents over the previous two years. However, these oil products had to be supplied to third countries instead of being sold in Ukraine, which allowed companies owned by Kurchenko to evade taxation. Kurchenko&#39;s bank accounts were arrested during the investigation, as well as his movable and immovable property worth over UAH 1.5 billion (US$53.3 million). In April 2014, the oligarch was put on the international wanted list.
