Batkivshchyna Party leader Yulia Tymoshenko has said that she will have four lawyers defending her during her trial, including two from Covington & Burling LLP and BDO, according to Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"Today, as I was required to do, I will present the court four defenders. One of them represents the audit firm BDO and another Covington & Burling, so that the world hears every word said during this trial and every fabricated charge," Yulia Tymoshenko told journalists before the start of today’s court hearing.

The other two lawyers are citizens of Ukraine. "I will tell the court who these two people are and once they are admitted to the case I will present them to the press," she added.
