The European Union shelved landmark deals on political association and free trade with Ukraine after a local court sent Tymoshenko to prison last October over a gas deal brokered with Russia in 2009 as prime minister.

The government of President Viktor Yanukovych, Tymoshenko’s long-time political foe, says the agreement went against national interests and saddled Ukraine with an exorbitant price for vital energy supplies.

Tymoshenko, one of the leaders of the 2004 Orange
Revolution protests that derailed Yanukovych’s first bid for presidency,
says she is the victim of a vendetta by Yanukovych, who narrowly beat
her for the presidency in February 2010.
