Files from the criminal cases against former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko related to the Kyoto Protocol and the purchase of first aid cars have disappeared from the General Prosecutor General’s Office, Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin said in an interview with Ukrainian online newspaper Leviy Bereh on Friday.


"It’s not only the criminal case [files] that have disappeared, but also other confidential materials, including those related to orders given by [former General Prosecutor] Viktor Pshonka," Shokin said.

According to Shokin, some of the case materials on the murder of Yevhen Shcherban, an MP from Donetsk who was killed in 1996 and a case in which Tymoshenko has been alleged to have been involved, have also disappeared.

An official investigation into the disappearance of the case materials is underway.
