Yanukovych won’t risk pardoning Tymoshenko, expert says
Pres Yanukovych won’t pardon Tymoshenko to send her abroad for medical treatment, political expert Serhy Taran said.Some other legal mechanism will be used, he went on, speaking to ZIK Oct 7.
If pardoned, Tymoshenko will be able to run for president in 2015, and this is not what will suit Viktor Yanukovych.
Yanukovych would prefer to release Tymoshenko after signing the association agreement with EU, not before, – to avoid being accused of giving in to EU pressure, the expert said.
