FORMER UKRAINIAN PRIME MINISTER YULIA TYMOSHENKO


 


In a letter dated August 8, 2011, the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) called upon the international community to increase pressure on Ukrainian government authorities and demand the immediate release from detention of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

 


Copies of this letter were sent by the UWC to President Viktor Yanukovych and to Nina Karpachova, the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights.

 






The full text of the letter






An unequivocal message needs to be conveyed that Ukrainian government authorities cannot chair the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe while openly disrespecting fundamental European values; otherwise, the international community’s criticism will continue to be ignored, being viewed merely as rhetoric,” stated Ukrainian World Congress President Eugene Czolij.
