“Of course, we are confident that the case will be considered
objectively in Europe. At the same time, political prisoners will not be
released even under a judgment of the European court until this gang
runs the country,” the head of the central election headquarters of the
united opposition, the first deputy leader of the Batkivschyna Party,
Oleksandr Turchynov, said outside the building of the Higher Specialized
Court for Civil and Criminal Cases in Kyiv on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

“Therefore, it will be possible to release prisoners, release
Tymoshenko and release Ukraine only by winning these elections,” he
said.

The No. 1 on the list of the united opposition, Front for Change
Party leader Arseniy Yatseniuk, supported his colleague that the ECHR’s
judgment could be fulfilled only after the opposition comes to power.
