A lawyer of former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko, Yuriy Sukhov, assumes that the gas case against his client could be sent by the Higher Specialized Court on Civil and Criminal Cases for additional investigation or a new trial.

"Being aware of the situation in our justice, I don't rule out that our appeal would be partially satisfied – the case may be sent for a new investigation or a new trial," the lawyer said on Thursday.

The lawyer asked that court to take into account the health state of Tymoshenko and not to choose a punitive measure for her in case it takes one of such decisions.
