KIEV, October 11 (Itar-Tass) —Ukrainian ex-Prime Minister YuliaTimoshenko has said that the judgement passed by the court on her case could be regarded as “Ukraine getting back to the year 1937.” Justice Rodion Kireyev of the Pechersky Court announced that Timoshenko had been sentenced to seven years of imprisonment for the signing of the gas contracts with Russia, after which she said that the verdict was proof of the existence of an authoritarian regime in Ukraine. “No authoritarian regime, no verdict will stop me. The trial showed that the Constitution and the administration of justice had been trampled underfoot. I urge you to begin the struggle. We are living through a very difficult and responsible period. We should protect Ukraine against the authoritarian regime. We should not lose heart,” she told the public.
Timoshenko was speaking, standing on her feet, simultaneously with the judge, who began to pronounce the verdict more loudly.
