 NEWS ITEM: Two high-profile Ukrainians have written to U.S. President Barack Obama recently. It’s too early to say whether this is the start of a trend, but the two individuals – First Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin and Oleksandr Tymoshenko, husband of imprisoned former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko – thought such correspondence was worth their time. Kuzmin complained about U.S. interference in a murder investigation, alleged a U.S. plot to arrest him and protested the Oct. 19 cancellation of his U.S. visa. Oleksandr Tymoshenko, on the other hand, thanked Obama for Kuzmin’s visa ban and asked for more sanctions against U.S. officials he blames for his wife's imprisonment and other human rights violations in Ukraine.
