The picture was hung on the wall of the building on Capitol Hill during a ceremony at which Mayor Gianni Alemanno expressed solidarity with Tymoshenko and promised to call on the mayors of other European Union capitals to take up the initiative.

Those present at the ceremony included Mykola Tomenko, deputy chairman of the Ukrainian parliament, Arsen Avakov, leader of Batkivschyna Kharkiv regional branch, and Andriy Shevchenko, a parliament deputy representing Batkivschyna.

Tomenko thanked Italy for supporting efforts to have Tymoshenko released and expressed hope that this support would “help achieve the release of Yulia Tymoshenko and her being granted the right to full-scale participation in the political life of the country, including participation in the presidential election in 2015.”
