Former Ukrainian Prime Minister and Batkivschyna Party leader Yulia Tymoshenko has begun to speak in the court debates on the Russian gas supply contract case against her in Kyiv's Pechersky District Court.
An Interfax-Ukraine reporter said that after lawyer Mykola Siry's speech in the debates, the court wanted to give the floor to Tymoshenko's husband, Oleksandr, but he did not return to the courtroom after a break in the court session.
Tymoshenko's daughter, Yevheniya Carr, then spoke in the court debates, and Tymoshenko herself started to speak after that.
