Court seizes assets worth over UAH 1 billion from Oksana Marchenko  

A court has arrested the corporate rights of Oksana Marchenko, the wife of former pro-Russian MP and leader of the banned Ukrainian party, Viktor Medvedchuk, in Zaporizhzhia Ferroalloy Plant. The total value of the blocked assets is over UAH 1 billion (more than USD 26 million - ed.)

This was reported by the Security Service of Ukraine in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.

"The court's decision concerns 13.7% of the company's shares, which Medvedchuk's wife owns through four offshore companies. Zaporizhzhia Ferroalloy Plant is a monopoly producer of metal braziers in Ukraine and is among the largest metallurgical companies in Europe. The seizure of the assets will protect them from being sold or re-registered to fictitious persons and will allow them to be transferred to our state in the future," the Ukrainian Security Service said.
