Oleksandr Tymoshenko,
husband of imprisoned former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, wrote to the
American president from his asylum in the Czech Republic to thank Obama for
cancellation of Kuzmin’s five-year visa and ask for more sanctions against
other officials.

“I hope that annulling the
visa and ban to enter USA for the first deputy prosecutor general Renat Kuzmin
will become the first practical step to full-scale action on behalf of USA and Western
countries to introduce sanctions against individuals who are involved in
political repressions in Ukraine,” Oleksandr Tymoshenko wrote in an open letter
posted on Batkivshchyna website.

Kuzmin’s visa was revoked
for traveling to the U.S. on work in July, despite holding only a tourist visa.
A diplomatic source told the Kyiv Post that Kuzmin made no formal arrangements
for working in America.
