Former Acting Defense Minister of Ukraine Valeriy Ivaschenko and his two defense lawyers have appealed against a ruling of Pechersky District Court of Kyiv, by which it sentenced Ivaschenko to five years of imprisonment.
Ivaschenko's lawyer Borys Nechyporenko told Interfax-Ukraine that the appeals have been filed to Kyiv Court of Appeals on Friday, April 27.

As reported, on April 12, 2012 Pechersky District Court of Kyiv sentenced Ivaschenko to five years of imprisonment and deprived him of a right to hold public posts for three years.

As reported, on August 20, 2010, the Prosecutor General's Office opened a criminal case against Ivaschenko under Part 2, Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (abuse of power or office).

In November 2009, Ivaschenko signed a bailout plan concerning the sale of the property of the Defense Ministry's state-owned enterprise Feodosiya shipbuilding and mechanical plant, including strategically important infrastructure facilities, including three moorings, bomb shelters and a building for the storage of mobilization reserves.
