You're reading: Lutsenko: Tymoshenko ties get you arrested
Popular
on social media

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. This campaign serves two purposes: first, to demonstrate that cooperation with Yulia Tymoshenko virtually equals arrest and, therefore, they want to “scorch the land” around the main opponents of the regime; second, to intimidate society and establish a climate of fear.
