Kroll to investigate withdrawals from PrivatBank

Chief of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) Yuriy Lutsenko has said the owners of accounts to which PrivatBank funds were transferred and which, according to preliminary information, were located by Kroll and other agencies, will all receive suspicion notices, whoever they are, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

“I, as PGO chief, am impatiently waiting for information from Kroll and a number of other Western audit companies, which, according to preliminary information, have found the accounts to which money from Ukraine was withdrawn. We are talking about UAH 180 billion, which were taken out of the bank and until now not PrivatBank or the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) or PGO agents have established where these funds are, because of time-consuming international information request procedures. Kroll and other foreign partners have done this much faster,” Lutsenko said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels aired on Tuesday.

Lutsenko said he is impatiently waiting for the official NBU report to investigators. He said it would be “a short path to issuing suspicion notices” after it is received.

“The owners and beneficiaries of these accounts, whoever they are, will receive a notice of suspicion. Let me state this clearly. It doesn’t matter what the surname is,” he said.
