Ukrainian prosecutors want to question ex-PM Lazarenko in US
"Such a request for the U.S. government and competent agencies does exist, as well as there are problems with receiving such assistance," Kuzmin said. "We have been trying to set various dates for questioning Lazarenko once again, but unfortunately the final date has still not been set for a year. Therefore, we hope that the U.S. will help us deal with the criminal cases that we are investigating," he said.
Some officials from the U.S. Prosecutor General's Office have been granted U.S. entry visas after former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was convicted for her role in concluding the 2009 gas supply contracts between Ukraine and Russia, he said.
