Yuriy Lutsenko: There are more than enough political prisoners here in Lukiyanivka [pre-trial detention jail]. So, there is one answer to that – this is the result of orders from the very top.

KP: Do you think that your arrest may be a tool to pressure ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko?

YL: My arrest is part of the campaign to intimidate the opposition.
