Ukraine's new interim Prime Minister, economist Arseniy Yatsenyuk, told parliament on Thursday that former president Viktor Yanukovych and his clan stole $70 billion from Ukraine over the past few years. "The treasury is empty," he noted, amid EU and US work on bailout and on repatriation of the stolen assets.
