You're reading: Clinton: United States to continue to seek Tymoshenko’s release
on social media

"We will continue to advocate for judicial due process and the release of you and the other imprisoned former senior government officials as a critical step in that process. Also, please be assured we are committed to free elections with the participation of all legitimate political candidates and parties in Ukraine. This is another critical step toward European Union integration and something your country has done successfully in the past. I hope this will again be the case in the October parliamentary elections," Tymoshenko’s Web site cited Clinton’s letter to Tymoshenko.

The secretary of state said that she had been following developments in Tymoshenko’s case closely.

"The United States was disappointed the Kyiv Court of Appeals upheld your conviction without addressing issues raised during the trial about selective prosecution and the administration of justice. Indeed, our concerns were then heightened by the sudden decision to transfer you to a prison far from Kyiv, especially given reports about your medical condition," Clinton said.
