Whatever be said by the representatives of the regime, not a single qualified lawyer in this country will be able to confirm the elements essential to the offense in Ms. Tymoshenko’s actions when she was issuing directives to Oleh Dubyna to sign the agreement with Gazprom.
Not a single responsible political scientist will call her verdict “fight against corruption." We may have different thoughts about the quality of her administration but we must admit that neither Pshonka nor Khoroshkovskiy, nor Mogylyov, nor auditors-impostors from Trout Cacheris were able to find any proof of her personal involvement in any official malfeasance.
Let us be honest. Tymoshenko was convicted on Oct. 11 for abuse-of-office involving a 2009 gas deal with Russia for one reason only: she is the main uncontrolled competitor of Yanukovych.
