According to him, Ukraine did not provide strong evidence for an extension of the European sanctions against these persons.

In July 2019, Court of Justice of the European Union annulled the sanctions against ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and his entourage. The sanctions were lifted from his son Oleksandr Yanykovych, ex-Minister of Revenues and Duties Oleksandr Klymenko, ex-Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka, his son Artem Pshonka, ex-Head of National Bank of Ukraine Serhiy Arbuzov, ex-Head of the Presidential Administration Andriy Klyuyev.
