According to Radio Svoboda on Jan. 17, Ukraine FM Leonid Kozhara said Ukraine will comply with the ruling by the European Court to free Tymoshenko.
“Ukraine has demonstrated flexibility many times. Regarding Yulia Tymoshenko, we expect the European Court on Human Rights will make the final decision in her case. As a member of the CE, Ukraine will abide by this decision,” Kozhara said.
No one is happy that Tymoshenko and Lutsenko are in prison, he added. However, many Ukrainians believe Tymoshenko and Lutsenko have committed crimes, Kozhara said.
