You're reading: Kuzmin asks EU ambassador to Ukraine to deal with misleading statement by EU Delegation

In his letter to Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Ian Tombinski,
which was posted on the Web site of the Prosecutor General’s Office on
Thursday, Kuzmin said: “On March 22, the EU Delegation to Ukraine
distributed a press release among the newsletter recipients… which
concerned the groundlessness of my accusations against Chairman of the
European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Elmar Brok.”

According to the EU Delegation to Ukraine, such accusations were made
during Kuzmin’s recent interview and concerned the behavior of the MEP
during his last visit to Kyiv in December 2012.

“The spreading by the EU Delegation to Ukraine of this erroneous
statement prompted me to appeal to you personally. I admit that the
reason for the emergence of such a press release was the publication of
my research paper ‘Defamation as a means of undue influence on the
courts and investigation in Ukraine’s criminal process’ in a
professional publication – the Zakon i Biznes (Law and Business)
newspaper, No. 11 (1101), March 16-22, 2013. If so, I draw your
attention, Mr. Ambassador, that this report is not my interview and does
not contain public accusations against MEP Brok,” reads the letter.
