First Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Renat Kuzmin has said that the Prosecutor's General Office has evidence that former Premiers Yulia Tymoshenko and Pavlo Lazarenko, as well as former Ukrainian President (1994-2005) Leonid Kuchma were involved in the murders.

"The PGO has evidences that Tymoshenko, Lazarenko and Kuchma are directly privy to the murders. And now we're collecting enough evidence to bring charges against them," he said in an interview with the Kiev Times publication.

"The most villainous acts in the world were committee by women, or because of women, or for the sake of women. By the way, the most violent crimes also: Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko is a special case from the point of view of the ethics of woman-man relations, and a very simple one from the point of view of the law. She is a criminal that was proved by two forensic institutions and [she] is enduring seven years of punishment," the first deputy prosecutor general added.

Moreover, he stated that ex-Interior Minister of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko "is a thief, and this was proved by two forensic institutions." He was found guilty of official crimes, including the embezzlement of state property, and this means that he is a criminal. He is a thief who tries to convince the world community that he is a victim of the political repression, but not a criminal," Kuzmin said.

He said Tymoshenko, Lazarenko and Lutsenko have already sued him for slander, but these suits were not satisfied.

Any statement uttered by Rinat Kuzmin or his boss Viktor Pshonka must be taken with a grain of salt. Both of these pompous asses have a long history of fabricating or making up evidence in order to try and discredit political opponents of the Party of Regions and follow the dictates of King Vitya. In its verdict handed out on July 03/2012 concerning the arrest, the trial and the conviction of Yuriy Lutsenko the European Court of Human Rights completely exonerated the former Minister of the Interior of all alleged crimes. It even imposed a fine to be paid by the Ukrainian Government for this absurd travesty of justice. So much for Ukrainian justice and its falsifiers.

Khvylia what Kuzmin claims is believed by most of the public and for good reason. The entire political class is rotten to the core. If the nation had honest gov't from the start Ukraine would have 2nd strongest economy in Europe instead it has been 20 years of looting.
