Three Ukrainian judges who convicted former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko two years ago face arrest if the Verkhovna Rada approves the measure on March 4.

Lutsenko, now an MP, said he would not vote as he had “no will to exact revenge,” Ukraine Today reports.

Oksana Tsarevych, Serhiy Vovk and Volodymyr Kytsyuk work in Kyiv's Pechersk District court, which is notorious in Ukraine for corruption and politically motivated convictions.
