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.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
