“The whole society, all normal people realize that this is a
political ruling… Lutsenko doesn’t change, he always remains a fighter,
the situation has tempered him,” the ex-minister’s wife, Iryna Lutsenko,
told journalists on Friday, Aug. 17.
According to her, the Ukrainian authorities should understand that they are taking a risk by convicting political leaders.
“Even after their arrest, new people will replace them,” she said.
