KIEV, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — The husband of Ukraine’s jailed former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko, Alexander, was not granted a political asylum in the Czech Republic, he got a refugee status, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Dikusarov told a news conference on Thursday.
“The Czech legislation even contains no norm that would stipulate the granting of political asylum. He really has a refugee status and he was granted it of his own free will,” he said.
Dikusarov underlined that “the situation has no political implication and the event will have no political consequences for the Ukrainian-Czech relations.”
