The Prime Minister said that had appealed to the Prosecutor's Office and the whole Ukrainian law enforcement system for several times to bring this case to end, to confiscate these assets.

"We will transfer them immediately to the state budget of the country. And I ask for the support of the Parliament and to ensure the adoption of a separate law to make it easier for prosecutors to perform their functions in confiscation of these funds", said the Prime Minister.
