EU Freezes Assets of Yanukovych and Allies

The Council of the European Union has adopted sanctions to freeze the financial assets within the EU of ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and 17 other people identified as having misused state funds.

The EU's 28 foreign ministers approved the list Wednesday and released their names early Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

Yanukovych and some of his closest allies are among those targeted by the sanctions. The list includes Yanukovych's son, the prosecutor general, the head of the security services, the justice minister and a former interior minister.

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and his son were also hit by the sanctions.

Initially, the measures will apply for 12 months starting Thursday.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
