"A significant number of corrupt practices during Yanukovych tenure were implemented in virtually all possible and impossible fields: education, culture, health care. They were carried out through the so-called financial platforms. The monthly illegal income received from the territory of the Dnipropetrovsk region alone amounted to 2 billion hryvnia ($76.9M) in cash," Yenin said.

According to him, the obtained funds were consequently exchanged for dollars, laundered, and siphoned off abroad.
