DONETSK, October 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The case of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko is a sovereign affair of Ukraine but it must have neither political nor anti-Russian dimension, President Dmitry Medvedev told a Tuesday press conference.
“They taught me at the university not to comment on court rulings – either Russian or foreign - until they enter into force,” Medvedev said.
“I proceed from the recognition of state sovereignty of Ukraine, any decisions, including those of courts, and independence of the judiciary,” he said.
“Nevertheless, I would like the Ukrainian court to be guided exclusively with Ukrainian laws so that rulings have neither political nor anti-Russian dimension. This is important to me as the president of a very large country,” Medvedev said.
Court acts must not call into question international commitments either, the president said, referring to the agreement between Russia’s Gazprom and Ukrainian Neftegaz.
