Prosecutor General’s Office Confiscates the Property of Aksyonov and Konstantinov
The Prosecutor General’s Office (GPU) has seized the property of deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea and the self-proclaimed leaders of the peninsula, including Sergei Aksyonov and Vladimir Konstantinov.
According to the official website of the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv has supported a petition by GPU investigators who are representing the interests of the state in the court. In the name of combating crime and corruption in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea the court has seized the immovable and movable property of said persons.
The estimated total value of the property is 1.2 billion UAH (about $55 million).
“In total, 67 vehicles were seized along with nearly 70 residential and non-residential properties, including in the mainland of Ukraine,” says the statement.
It was also noted that GPU investigators are investigating criminal cases concerning deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC) and the self-proclaimed leaders of the Crimean government. These individuals are suspected of involvement in the violent change of the constitutional order and the borders of Ukraine, public appeals to such acts, and treason. These articles provide for imprisonment of up to 15 years along with the confiscation of property.
