“Recently, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution, which did not draw
special attention of the U.S. media… It is commonly known that the
United States Senate passes many resolutions on various issues. The U.S.
really take leading positions in many aspects, so it is quite natural
that politicians and senators express their opinions on various issues
related to various parts of the world. This resolution is not an
exceptional case – it is not obligatory and its does not oblige the
Senate to take any action, it’s just an expression of the opinion of
those people that lobbied for it in the Senate,” the expert said in an
interview with Interfax-Ukraine.
He also said that the U.S. officials are still concerned about the situation with former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko.
“Of course, politicians should be held to account, but this practice
should not have a selective character, and the legislation should be
applied equally to everyone, and the justice system should not be
politicized. At the same time, it does not mean that the person is not
guilty,” he said.
