“Yulia Tymoshenko is by all means trying to avoid an open and
transparent criminal trial on charges of the contract killing of Yevhen
Scherban. She’s not afraid of the trial, she’s afraid of the evidence
that will be presented by the prosecutors. She’s afraid that people will
learn the truth about the dark spots of her biography in the middle of
the 1990s,” the party’s press service quoted him as saying.
Oliynyk said that by making a statement on her non-involvement in the
Scherban case, Tymoshenko had made no mention of whether she knew the
members of a criminal group led by Kushnir. In his opinion, if she is
silent on this issue, it proves that she is familiar with them.
“If the public recognizes her guilt during an open trial, it will be the end of Tymoshenko’s political career,” the MP said.
