Out of the USD 1.5 billion assets plundered by the former regime of Yanukovych the sum of UAH3 billion should be directed to additional financing for the National Police. The Government expects the Parliament adopt the relevant law, while judiciary and law enforcement agencies –confiscate these funds and transfer to the budget. Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said during an oath taking ceremony of the patrol police officers at the city of Boryspil on Thursday, March 24.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov had appealed to the Government with a request to increase funding to the National Police by UAH 3 billion to complete the reform.

He noted that the source for such assistance would become the assets of the former regime of Viktor Yanukovych totalling USD 1.5 billion that the Government of Ukraine had arrested a year before.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized the Government awaited the Ukraine’s Parliament would adopt the respective law while the judicial and law enforcement systems would confiscate these funds, transfer to the budget, which would enable "part of the funds to be spent to the national security and defense and to ensure additional financing of the National Police".

"We’re facing huge challenges. Russia has not stopped the war against Ukraine. Global terrorism is engulfing Europe. Each police officer, thus performing his sacred duty, protects the country and protects every citizen. But on the part of the Government we should prolong financing a reform of the National Police and that of the Armed Forces of the country and each particular reform, from health care to education," stressed the Head of Government.
