The Interior Ministry of Ukraine refutes inadequate information, disseminated by some mass media on June 21, that as if Sean Karr, son-in-law of Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, beat policemen in Odessa.

According to the Interior Ministry’s statement, forwarded to UNIAN, this information is inadequate and is politically motivated.

The statement reads that, according to results of a preliminary investigation into the incident, and basing on results of forensic expertises, it appeared that policemen exceeded their authorities, and, by brute force, inflicted bodily injures upon Sean Karr and Yevhenia Tymoshenko [Yulia Tymoshenko’s daughter]. The unprofessional actions of the policemen caused a big public resonance and politicized the event.

According to the statement of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine, a proper decision will be made basing on results of the investigation.
