On hand I have statements of Viktor Yanukovych with the “Oschadbank”, there is a totally different amount. We are talking about 28 million UAH, which is arrested and which are not to be confiscated now. This money is his personal account, his personal savings from which were paid all taxes. Therefore, the latter, actively distribute information about the seizure of funds, their confiscation and seizure is completely untrue”, – said Serdyuk.
