BRUSSELS, September 15. /TASS/. The European Court of Justice has partially sustained lawsuits filed by Ukraine’s former president, Viktor Yanukovich, his son Alexander and former chief of the presidential staff Sergey Klyuyev, who demand the lifting of EU sanctions, the court’s spokesman told TASS following hearings in Luxembourg. The ban on entering the EU and the freeze on financial assets in Europe remain in effect.
The court partially sustained lawsuits filed by all three Ukrainian plaintiffs and canceled the freeze on their financial assets from March 6, 2014 to March 5, 2015. Also, the court confirmed the freeze on their financial assets that lasted from March 6, 2015 to March 6, 2016.
As for the current package of sanctions operating from March 7, 2016 to March 6, 2017, they remain in force, but they were not a theme of the current litigation. Hearings on that part of the sanctions package will be held separately, he said.
