European Court of Justice lifts sanctions on Yanukovych

On September 24, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) lifted the sanctions that had been on former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych in 2018-2019, his press secretary Yuri Kirasir announced on Tuesday.

“The decision of the European Court of Justice from 24.09.2019 to lift the sanctions against ex-President of Ukraine V.F. Yanukovych for 2018-2019 is confirmation of the illegitimacy and groundlessness of their imposition by the EU organs and a significant reason to lift them as soon as possible and rehabilitate V.F. Yanukovych as an undeserving victim of political persecution both in Ukraine and in the European Union,” Yanukovych’s press service said in a statement.

  1. This is the second source reporting this, after UNA. Yet i see no western source confirming it. Could be fake news, or the West does not want anybody know about this (if true) shameful ruling.

    • All this BS is coming from Yanu’s press secretary. I posted an official statement yesterday from the EU, that said sanctions are not lifted.

What is your opinion?
