You're reading: Tymoshenko says October vote ‘already rigged’

on social media

A Ukrainian court sentenced Tymoshenko to seven years in
prison on abuse-of-office charges last October in a case
criticised by the West as an example of selective justice,
straining Kiev’s relations with Brussels and Washington.

Tymoshenko, who has denied any wrongdoing, accused
Yanukovich of using the legal system to carry out personal
revenge against her.

As a result of the conviction, she cannot run in the October
28 vote in which Yanukovich’s Party of the Regions is expected
to retain a majority but is closely trailed by a bloc which
includes Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party.
