MOSCOW, October 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian lawyers are offering their help to Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko in international courts, including in the European Court of Human Rights, the president of the Guild of Russian Lawyers, Gasan Mirzoyev, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.

Kiev’s Pechersky District Court has found Timoshenko guilty of exceeding her office duties while signing gas deals with Russia in 2009 and sentenced her to seven years in prison.

“We are ready to offer Yulia Timoshenko all the necessary juridical assistance to protect her rights in international courts, and in the European Court of Human Rights,” he said.

Russian lawyers believe the sentence is “outside the judicial sphere, it is purely political,” he said. “We hope Ukraine’s superior courts will give an unbiased legal assessment of the sentence.”

“The sentence was awarded despite the fact that the gas supply and transit contracts were signed in strict compliance both with Russian and Ukrainian laws, and with international legal acts,” Mirzoyev stressed.
