KIEV, May 8 (Itar-Tass) —— The trial of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister, Batkivshchyna Party leader Yulia Timoshenko was the fairest in the world, Ukrainian First Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin told the German edition Die Zeit.
“I cannot understand why I have to justify that trial all the time,” he said. “What do you want? What problems do our German friends speak about? Timoshenko had the fairest trial in the world and she receives the best healthcare. She does not have to work in prison. She is permitted to write protest letters all day long. She is not even forced to put on prison wear,” Kuzmin said.
He said he could not imagine his life without Timoshenko. “I visit Brussels and Strasbourg constantly and give explanations to politicians. Everyone is talking about dictatorship but no one cares what Timoshenko has done,” he said.
Timoshenko is serving a seven-year-term in Kharkov after the court sentenced her on October 11, 2011, for exceeding the authority in the signing of the gas contracts with Russia in 2009.
The West took a keen interest in her case and even linked it with the Euro 2012 finals due in Ukraine. A number of Western politicians, among them European commissioners, said earlier they would boycott Ukrainian matches of Euro 2012 due to the Timoshenko situation.
