The Swiss government said it will order banks to freeze any funds in Swiss banks found to be linked to ousted President Viktor Yanukovich, Reuters reported.

"The federal council decided yesterday to freeze any Yanukovich funds found in Switzerland," government spokesman Andre Simonazzi said in an emailed statement.

Earlier on Thursday, Ukraine's new prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk accused the Yanukovich government of stripping state coffers bare, saying $37 billion of credit it had received had disappeared.
