About 75 Ukrainian companies have been involved in the corrupt schemes of ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.

Analyst of the Transparency International organization Yevhen Cherniak said this to Radio Liberty.

"Not Yanukovych himself, but his cronies and family members acted in the scams. About 75 Ukrainian companies have been involved. 51 companies have been within foreign jurisdictions, including offshore: Panama, United Kingdom, Austria, Switzerland, Cyprus. In addition, there have been about 20 individuals who are the key ones. The scale of scams is so great that it is not so easy to puzzle them out," Cherniak said.

According to him, the investigation into these crimes may last for several years.
