Tymoshenko slams trial as sham

Text size Aa Aa

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s trial in Kiev on charges of abuse of power began on Wednesday, but only to be ajourned until July 4. The charges relate to a 10-year deal signed with Russia’s Gazprom in 2009. Tymoshenko says the trial is “political revenge”, and she accused the judge of being in President Yanukovic’s pocket in the stormy hour-long session.
