Yulia Mendel, a spokeswoman for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the United States will not stop at the sanctions it has imposed on Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky. Mendel said this in an interview with the editor-in-chief of "Gordon" Olesya Batsman, according to RBC-Ukraine agency.
"The sanction is more symbolic and shows that they have evidence of his corruption because the word 'corruption' sounds clear. I don't think it's the end. I think it's the beginning," Mendel said.
At the same time, she could not confirm or deny the possibility of extraditing Ihor Kolomoisky to the US authorities if Washington sends a request to Kyiv.\
Answering whether Ukraine will impose sanctions against Kolomoisky, Yulia Mendel said: "We'll see."
The president's spokeswoman reminded of the suspicion of embezzling 137 million UAH (around 5 million dollars) by three former top managers of Privatbank, which previously belonged to Kolomoisky.
Earlier, US imposed sanctions against oligarch Kolomoisky due to "involvement in significant corruption."
