A total of $1.7 billion ($1.5 billion earlier and $200 million the other day) has already been confiscated from the accounts of former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and his entourage since the law on special confiscation came into force.

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko said this on the air of TSN.Tyzhden TV program.

"I would like to tell about two key figures. First, according to the scientific research that was officially conducted by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, the losses caused by the Yanukovych regime to the Ukrainian state total $40 billion, which is one annual state budget... Therefore, $1.5 billion, which we managed to return back to the state budget through special confiscation, is only part of the funds stolen by the organized criminal group of Yanukovych. These funds are returned in accordance with the law and the court rulings," the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko said.
