"On December 19, the Federal Council decided to extend for one year the preventive freeze on the assets of ousted [Ukrainian] President Viktor Yanukovych and his entourage," the Swiss Embassy in Ukraine wrote on Twitter on December 20, 2018.

"The purpose of this decision is to support the judicial cooperation between Switzerland and Ukraine," reads the tweet.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Switzerland froze Yanukovych's assets worth CHF 70 million (over US$69 million) in 2014.
