Radio “Svoboda” reports that the Senate approved this document on November 18.

In the resolution there is a concern concerning a selective justice and politically motivated imprisonment of Yu. Tymoshenko that “detracts from Ukraine’s otherwise strong relationship with Europe, the United States, and the community of democracies”.

US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations adopted this resolution late in June.
