In the framework of international legal aid we have exchanged information with legal enforcement authorities of Ukraine, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Interrogation of the key witness, CEPEKs former senior executive Borys Tymonkin, came to nothing as well, and he is waiting for verdict of Germany on his extradition to Ukraine. He is charged with bank fraud for the benefit of Kurchenko.

We remind that Austrian authorities identified the beneficiary owners of LPG Trading as Kurchenko and Oleksii Azarov. In July 2014 they frozen the company's assets.
