You're reading: Tymoshenko lawyer calls for freezing Yanukovych accounts, limiting travels of his family

 Convicted ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko thinks that international pressure on Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych would be efficient only if the president's bank accounts are frozen and his family's traveling is limited.

“If the traveling of his family is limited and his money is frozen at least for the period of anti-corruption inquiries, the pressure will be efficient,” he told the Voice of America in Washington DC.

In his opinion, Yanukovych has alternative legal ways of releasing Tymoshenko but the highly emotional background of the Tymoshenko case prevents the president from doing that.
