MOSCOW, April 28 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia is bewildered by imprisonment of Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, President Dmitry Medvedev said Saturday night at a meeting of the Council for the Promotion of Civic Society and Human Rights.

“That’s totally unacceptable from the angle of persecution of political adversaries and it casts shadow over the state as such, if you take Ukraine, and over the people taking decisions there,” Medvedev said.

“People may hate each other or may speak their mind as part of rancorous polemics and under the spell of political struggle,” he said. “But it’s a totally different story when participants in a presidential race, immediate competitors in the political process turn up behind bars in the courtroom or in jail.”

“As a minimum, such situations cause huge astonishment, even if one looks back at our notable totalitarian traditions,” Medvedev said.
