Ukraine to jail Tymoshenko for 7 years?



(I'm sure that Tymilfshenko has excellent lawyers for appeals besides significant international support, and doubt it will actually happen)

The United States, Russia and the European Union reacted sharply to the verdict and the sentence, the maximum sought by state prosecutors. The White House said in a statement it was "deeply disappointed" about the verdict and had "serious concerns" about Kiev's commitment to democracy.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, speaking on a visit to Beijing, said it could jeopardize energy relations between the two former Soviet states, while the foreign ministry said it had detected an "obvious anti-Russian subtext" in the outcome.

The Tymoshenko affair seems certain to slow the Kiev government's drive for European integration, a declared foreign policy priority for President Viktor Yanukovich. In Brussels, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the bloc was "deeply disappointed" by the verdict in the trial that smacked of "selective" justice.

She's not exactly a loser politically. Her party was elected to parliament and she was PM.

She should be jailed for using the same hairdo for almost 30 years.

Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.

miffedmax was obviously referring to the last election, where she barely lost to azarov (who is beyond this juridical farce, according to timoshenko).
say goodbye to a european integration in the near future, ukraine.

Thank God. The new USSR (Bruxelles) has already destroyed the SFR on the currency board hope it would get no further.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

Not Azarov, but Yanukovich. As for losing potential Euro integration, that may not be such a bad thing with current economic situation in Europe.

That's a rare combination

So the initial arrest was for "tax evasion" (creative )? But I got a feeling this is more like a "witch-hunt" (because she is attractive and therefore also threatening to her local opponents), so I searched Tymoshenko and "treason" in google.com, and sure enough, numerous hits ( so "old-school" ).

Re: Ukraine to jail Tymoshenko for 7 years?

Merkel asked in the past days to all the main european politicians not to attend the european champs of football which are to take place this summer in Ukrain, for the exact same reason...

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Good idea

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I am really torn on the whole Tymoshenko case. Comments that she shouldn't be in jail because she is pretty or because she was a president of Ukraine are absurd. I am not sure is Ukrainian law system corrupt or not but if she did what they are charging her for she should get 7 years. Maybe some international unbiased court should investigate the case but I am sure pro Russian government won't let them close to the case. The final message is, Don't mess with Russians.

Re: Ukraine to jail Tymoshenko for 7 years?

Yulia's rivalry with Yuschenko (who had of course suffered the disfiguring poisoning several years ago) let the Kremlin play "divide and conquer", to the benefit of PP (Putin Pro-xy) Yanukovich. The two leaders of the Green Revolution let their personal rivalry get the better of them, and have each paid the price.

There is no way she's serving 7 years. They'll keep there her until elections to parliament are over for sure. But after that she's likely to go free.
