BRUSSELS, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former Deputy Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov, former Minister of Revenues Oleksandr Klymenko, former Energy Minister Eduard Stavytsky, and member of the Party of Regions Yuriy Ivanyushchenko were added to the EU black list of sanctioned officials. Their assets on the territory of the EU (provided they have any) will be frozen.
The decision taken by the European Council came into effect after it had been published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The number of people, whose assets will be frozen in the EU, increased from 18 to 22.
Earlier, the EU imposed similar sanctions on 18 Ukrainian officials, including President Viktor Yanukovych, former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, and former Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka. According to the EU, these persons embezzled funds and were involved in human rights violations.
