The Prosecutor General’s Office has rejected Yulia Tymoshenko’s request for permission to travel outside Ukraine, according to Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"My petition to travel to Brussels for working meetings with the leadership of the European Union and European People’s Party was rejected," Yulia Tymoshenko told reporters today after a nearly five-hour interrogation at the special cases department of the Prosecutor General’s Office.

Yulia Tymoshenko says the refusal to allow her to travel abroad is another sign of the government’s fear of a strong opposition. "The fact that Prosecutor General Pshonka denied my request to travel to Brussels is another sign of Yanukovych’s strange fear, which is spreading like a contagious disease to all his subordinates. It’s a fear that the world will find out about the situation in Ukraine, fear that he’s losing his power, and fear of responsibility for what he’s doing right now," she said.

Yulia Tymoshenko added that investigators turned down her request to leave the country because the invitation to Brussels wasn’t translated into Ukrainian. "I think I’ll submit another petition and translate all the invitations. They say the documents have to be notarized, even though all they have to do is look in the press and read that the invitation was made public and nobody is hiding it," she said.
