Asset freeze on former Vice PM of Ukraine lifted, other misappropriation listings renewed

HM Treasury has published a notice confirming that an EU asset freeze against Raisa Bohatyriova, politician and former Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, has been lifted, following the publication of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/311.  The Regulation and related Decision extended asset freezes by 1 year against 16 people listed for allegedly misappropriating Ukrainian state funds, and de-listed Ms Bohatyriova after she was said to have repaid the funds she was accused of misappropriating.
