Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been charged with two counts of misusing a total of EUR 380 million from public funds allocated under the Kyoto Protocol, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.

Also, a criminal case has been opened over the acquisition of 1,000 cars, he said.

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has also put former head of the State Treasury Tetiana Sliuz, who is allegedly involved in the misuse of funds allocated under the Kyoto Protocol, on the wanted list, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

"Come to investigators and prove your innocence with your lawyer. A travel ban has been ignored. In this case, the law demands that the situation be unambiguously tougher," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.

"Therefore, the investigator submitted procedural documents about her detention, transport to court and arrest," Pshonka said.

"She is officially on the wanted list," he said, adding that such measure was taken due to the fact that Sliuz has ignored a ban on her travelling outside Kyiv.

The prosecutor general said that the former head of the State Treasury was involved in the misuse of funds allocated under the Kyoto Protocol.

Sliuz headed the State Treasury from December 2007 and was dismissed after the government led by former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was replaced by the government of Mykola Azarov following Viktor Yanukovych's victory in Ukraine's presidential election in February 2010.
