Ukraine's Prosecutor General: An attempt was made to withdraw funds from Yanuckovych's account

A total of UAH 100.64 million hrvynia ($3.74 USD)  was based in the GLOBUS Bank-based accounts, whose beneficial owner is the son of ex-President Oleksandr Yanukovych. This discovery is reflected in the February 8 decision of the Pecherskyi court of Kyiv, which was published on 20 February. At the request of the Prosecutor General, the court seized these funds.

On January 19, The State Financial Monitoring Service of Ukraine (SDFM) recorded that officials of the "All-Ukrainian Development Bank", which is owned by Oleksandr Yanukovych, listed assets of UAH 100.64 million (($3.74 USD)  in GLOBUS bank.

After that, an attempt was made to withdraw these funds from the GLOBUS account.

The funds were technically deposited in the accounts of employees of the All-Ukrainian Development Bank.

However, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine argued that the de facto owner of the money is Oleksandr Yanukovych. The bank's employees, under whose names the accounts were opened, had no legal income that would correspond to the volume of the deposits.

According to the prosecutor, beginning in 2011, Yanukovych "created an organized group with the participation of the bank's employees for the purpose of laundering proceeds from crime." To disguise the origin of money, the bank's employees deposited them in their own accounts, while signing contracts and loans for those funds to a citizen named Yashar Khodzhaev.
