Law enforcement officials have detained two people suspected of laundering money for former president Viktor Yanukovych and his associates.

Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko announced this on Facebook, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"N. Ihnatchenko and A. Frolov, who are suspected of laundering funds received by members of an organized crime group through non-resident enterprises controlled by them, have been detained," Lutsenko wrote.

According to him, a court will determine the measure of restraint to be taken against them on Wednesday.

The prosecutor's office will ask for their detention or release on a bail of UAH 1 billion.
