"If you ask me, what I would do so that there were no criminal proceedings against Tymoshenko. I’ll tell you, I would do anything so that this case would not exist, so that there would be no place for the so-called problem, which is now being discussed in Ukraine and in the world. I am the number one person in Ukraine interested in clearing Ukraine of this problem," he told the media in Strasbourg on Tuesday.

The trial was opened based on written complaints about violations of the law on her part during her tenure as prime minister, or her entourage, he said.
