“Yulia Volodymyrivna [Tymoshenko] has asked to hold the checks… We have filed a formal application requesting an inquiry into the violation of the U.S. laws and we expect the official reaction,” the ex-premier’s defense lawyer, Serhiy Vlasenko, said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday. 

He stressed that such application was an ordinary request for a probe into unlawful activities. Vlasenko stressed that since such actions were conducted on the territory of the United States, Tymoshenko and her defense team turned to the U.S. attorney general.

Vlasenko said that Ukraine hadn’t held a tender for holding a legal examination of the trial of ex-premier Tymoshenko, and the Skadden law firm was chosen without any competition.
