Yulia Tymoshenko, the nation’s top opposition leader, was sentenced to seven years in jail in October in a trial the West has condemned as politically motivated.

Tymoshenko’s office said Thursday that she is pulling out from all legal proceedings in Ukraine and will press her case in the European Court of Human Rights. Tymoshenko charged the courts will not be objective in Ukraine as long as her longtime foe, President Viktor Yanukovych, is in power.
