When Judge Serhiy Vovk read out the four-year jail sentence, few were surprised, including the opposition leader himself.

The judgment was delivered in the same court where former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, a close ally of Lutsenko, was sentenced to seven years in prison on Oct. 11.

The convicted say that President Viktor Yanukovych is pursuing a political vendetta against them and their allies. The U.S. and the European Union agree and have called on Yanukovych to back off and free his opponents and let them take part in parliamentary elections on Oct. 28.
