National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine has not received any documents from the U.S. government, which would make it possible to impose national-level sanctions against businessman Ihor Kolomoysky, MPs Oleksandr Dubinsky and Andriy Derkach. Oleksiy Danilov, the Secretary of the Council said so as quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.
"The NSDC works with documents, not emotions. If a country (the U.S.) passes its documents in Ukraine in the established order, we will consider them in respective institutions. Then certain processes (sanctions, - 112 International) may follow. Currently, there are no documents about Kolomoysky, Dubinsky or Derkach in our institutions - as far as I know", Danilov said.
On March 5, the United States announced public designation of oligarch and former Ukrainian public official Ihor Kolomoysky due to his involvement in significant corruption and imposed restrictive measures against him and his family.
In August 2020, the U.S. Justice Department accused Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoysky of stealing billions of dollars from a bank he once owned (Privatbank - 112 International) and laundering that money in the United States and all over the world.
