Yanukovych, not Tymoshenko, invited to The Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly session
The spokesman, however, said he did not rule out that Tymoshenko could come to Strasbourg at the invitation of some political group.
PACE has officially invited Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryschenko to its session, he said.
Tymoshenko, who has been ordered by investigators not to leave Kyiv, has asked the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office to allow her to visit Strasbourg on June 21-22.
The Batkivschyna party's press service claims that the former prime minister has been invited to PACE's session.
