"The fabricated criminal case against Tymoshenko is falling to pieces before the eyes of the entire Ukrainian community and the eyes of the international community," the first deputy leader of the Batkivschyna Party, Oleksandr Turchynov, told journalists in Kyiv on Sept. 12.

He said that there were no legal grounds for the arrest of Tymoshenko and her prosecution.

"Understanding this, and wanting to simply win time until all of the international negotiations are held, after refusing to consider a petition from lawyers to change the measure of restraint [against Tymoshenko] this morning, [Judge Rodion] Kireyev announced a break until Sept. 27 without providing any explanations," Turchynov said.
