The opposition leader’s jailing for seven years last October
soured the former Soviet republic’s relations with the European
Union, which sees her as a victim of selective justice by

Yanukovich leadership has shown no signs of releasing her and

is accused of embezzlement and tax evasion going back to alleged
offences when she was a businesswoman in the 1990s.
