VIENNA, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. It is impossible to set former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko free, as this is not allowed by Ukrainian legislation, Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich told a news conference here Thursday.
Timoshenko is serving a seven-year jail term for what the Ukrainian judiciary describes as occupational abuses in the course of signing agreements on the purchases of Russian natural gas in 2009. Her release of imprisonment is a key condition for the signing of an association agreement between Ukraine and the EU.
