KIEV, October 14 (Itar-Tass) — The interrogation of ex-Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko under a new criminal case (the transfer of the debt of United Energy Systems of Ukraine-- UESU Corporation to the state budget) will be continued on October 17, Yuri Boichenko, head of the public relations department of the Prosecutor-General’s Office, said at a briefing here on Friday.
“On Thursday the investigator began the interrogation of Timoshenko, but it was interrupted and stopped on the initiative of Sergey Vlasenko, a lawyer,” Boichenko said.
Timoshenko has been accused of transferring the debt of UESU to the Russian Defence Ministry, which amounted to 405.5 million dollars, to the state budget of Ukraine. New criminal proceedings against the ex-prime minister were instituted on the basis of a letter, forwarded by the Russian Defence Ministry to the Ukrainian government, which raised the question of the payment of the UESU debt amounting to 405.5 million dollars.
According to the information of the Ukrainian Security Service, charges on the case were brought against Timoshenko on October 12. Timoshenko headed the UESU Corporation in 1995-1997. She stated last June that she did not have any debts to the Russian Defence Ministry.
