Editor’s Note: The following is the official translation of a letter sent by First Deputy Prosecutor General to the U.S. Congress on Feb. 4. It can be read on the website of the General Prosecutor's Office here. This is Kuzmin’s third letter to American officials. He wrote to U.S. President Barack Obama on Dec. 3, complaining about having his multiple-entry tourist visa revoked, a circumstance he learned about from U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John F. Tefft on Oct. 19. The letter can be read here. Kuzmin’s letter to Obama also sought help in the investigation into the 1996 murder of member of parliament Yevhen Shcherban. Prosecutors have identified imprisoned ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko as a suspect, allegations she denies. Before the letter to Obama, Kuzmin on Oct. 3 sent an open letter to the U.S. Congress.
