Ukraine's new prime minister Arseniy Yatseniuk claims $70bn have been stolen from state coffers over the past three years. He is quoted by Interfax Ukraine as saying:

    About $70bn has been withdrawn from Ukraine's financial system to offshore accounts over the last three years. Now it's clear that they withdrew the funds that were raised as loans under state guarantees and [they were] stolen by representatives of the previous government.

Great!Then they can talk to their friends /western bankers (money must be there, where else?) and get that money back taken from those oligarch (including their own)who in did still the money.That is an easy solution...I suppose...
