In an interview with the Kyiv Post and Glavred, ex-Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko – jailed since December on charges of overpaying his former official driver and other alleged misspending of the state budget – talked about the charges he is facing, which he describes as politically motivated and ordered by President Viktor Yanukovych. Below are excerpts:

Kyiv Post: In your opinion, who gave the order to arrest you?

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?
