Yulia Tymoshenko Interrogated and Released

May 24th, 2011   Articles | Ukraine

Earlier today the news agency AFP and the KyivPost suggested that Yulia Tymoshenko, former prime minister of Ukraine and leader of the political bloc Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) might be arrested. This was not the case. She was released following the interrogation about corruption in connection with an agreement about gas.

This morning Yulia Tymoshenko was summoned to an interrogation. This was not the first time Ukrainian authorities called her in for questioning. She is being accused of mishandling of state funds and is placed under de facto house arrest since December 22, 2011. She has only been allowed to travel at a few occasions; including a trip to Brussels in March of this year.
