Yulia Tymoshenko insists that UESU case be closed because of absence of crime
Yulia Tymoshenko’s defense lawyers tomorrow will give the Security Service of Ukraine a statement by Yulia Tymoshenko asking that they close the fabricated case against her involving debt guarantees between United Energy Systems of Ukraine and the Russian Ministry of Defense, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.
"Tomorrow we are going to the Security Service of Ukraine, citing the official position of Mykola Azarov’s government that there are no state guarantees involving UESU, and delivering a statement by Yulia Tymoshenko asking that the fabricated case against her be closed given the absence of a crime," said Serhiy Vlasenko.
He lawyer insists that the appeal of the ruling the by Kyiv Economics Court in the lawsuit by the Russian Ministry of Defense involving alleged debt obligations belonging to UESU is further evidence of the Ukrainian government’s policy to invent criminal charges against Yulia Tymoshenko. "As soon as this case went to court, Azarov’s Cabinet of Ministers was forced to give the court direct evidence of the fact that there were never any state obligations for debts owed by United Energy Systems of Ukraine. Therefore, today, stuck in this dead end, seeing this undeniable evidence, the court was forced to allegedly hand over this information to the Security Service of Ukraine," he said.
"The whole world can see through this case how charges are fabricated in Ukraine. It’s totally clear that if Azarov’s government says were no guarantees, then within five minutes the Security Service of Ukraine should close this case," said Serhiy Vlasenko.
Today the Kyiv Appeal’s Court suspended proceedings in the appeal by the Cabinet of Minister of the ruling by the Kyiv Economic Court from September 19 requiring that Ukraine pay the Russian Ministry of Defense 3.2 billion hryvnias in alleged debt owed by UESU. The case was suspending in connection with the investigation by the Security Service of Ukraine of the same criminal case.
