Prison postpones Yulia Tymoshenko's meeting with EU and US ambassadors
The State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine has cancelled Yulia Tymoshenko’s meeting with Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine Ambassador Jan Tombinski and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Tefft that was scheduled for April 29, according to the official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.
According to preliminary information, Ambassadors Tombinski and Tefft, if given permission, will only be able to meet with Yulia Tymoshenko after the May holidays.
This January, immediately after Yulia Tymoshenko announced an act of civil disobedience, Ambassadors Tombinski and Tefft asked the Ukrainian government for permission to meet with the ex-premier but were never given a response. In late February they made a second request to the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Viktor Yanukovych.
