U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a meeting with President Viktor Yanukovych in Munich on Saturday expressed her concern over the politically motivated prosecution of Yulia Tymoshenko, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

“The Secretary made clear our concern about selective prosecutions of political opposition members, particularly the case of Yulia Tymoshenko and her health and the conditions of her confinement,” a senior State Department official said during a special briefing on Saturday.

Hillary Clinton made clear that the Tymoshenko case "was a matter not just of legal reform but of all of us wanting to support Ukraine’s European integration and to improve Ukraine’s image and reputation,”

During her visit to the U.S. last week, Eugenia Tymoshenko, Yulia Tymoshenko’s daughter, met with Hillary Clinton and gave her a letter from her mother.
