Tymoshenko ends appeal in Ukraine
Tymoshenko's office said Thursday that she is pulling out from all legal proceedings in Ukraine and will press her case in the European Court of Human Rights. Tymoshenko charged the courts will not be objective in Ukraine as long as her longtime foe, President Viktor Yanukovych, is in power.
Her lawyers said that a Kiev court hearing her appeal has adjourned until Friday and is likely to continue with the case despite Tymoshenko's absence.
