KIEV, September 14 (Itar-Tass) –Ex-Ukrainian Interior Minister Yuri Lutsenko doing a four-year sentence says he is ready to continue his political career.
“My political career is not over. On the contrary, a person with two convictions lives the most interesting life in this country; I won’t start writing memoirs right now. When the parliamentary election ends, I will begin to create a supra-party organization of democratic voters, “For New President.” I am getting in touch with my supporters to work out an action plan,” Lutsenko said.
The Kiev Pechersky District Court sentenced Lutsenko on August 17, 2012, to two years in custody in the case of illegal surveillance in the course of the investigation of the poisoning of ex-Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko in 2004. The same court sentenced Lutsenko in February to four years for exceeding his authority and embezzling funds in the celebrations of the Police Day in 2008-2009. The ex-minister has been in custody since December 28, 2010.
Lutsenko will be freed in December 2014, and Ukraine will elect its new president in March 2015.
