Ukraine can rely on return from Latvia of at least 50% of the assets stolen by fugitive president Viktor Yanukovych.

Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yevhen Yenin said this on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"We have clearly demonstrated our interest in the recovery of assets. The issue of return of that money was for the first time raised at such a high level. The very next week, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine plans to pay a visit to Latvia in order to show the evidence gathered by our investigation to justify speedy return of the assets to Ukraine," Yenin said.

He added that the first verdicts in criminal proceedings, which would be the basis for return of the assets, were expected to be delivered by the end of this year. “I think we can rely on return of at least 50% of the assets,” the Deputy Prosecutor General noted.
