Dear Sirs

This firm represented President Yanukovych in the annulment application hearing in the General Court of the European Union today.

In your article published a few hours ago you suggest that President Yanukovych has complained (through his lawyers) that an excessive amount of his European assets have been frozen. You have completely misunderstood the nature of the legal submissions made on his behalf. There was no suggestion at the hearing that President Yanukovych has any European assets or even any discussion of his assets, let alone any suggestion that “too many” of these assets have been frozen.

It is important that all reports of legal proceedings are fair and accurate. In the circumstances, we would invite you to correct your misleading article and to publish the content of this letter.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Hage
