Yulia Tymoshenko’s defense lawyer Mykola Siryi has filed a motion with the court to close the criminal case against Yulia Tymoshenko given that during the last hearing the court couldn’t explain the nature of the charges or the criminal act.

"In the absence of the occurrence of crime under Subparagraph 1 of Article 6 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine further consideration of this case is impossible and criminal proceedings should be closed. Given this and Article 282 of the Criminal Procedure Code I ask the court to close the proceedings in the criminal case against Yulia Tymoshenko under Paragraph 3 of Article 365 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on the basis of Subparagraph 1 of Paragraph 1 of Article 6 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine given the absence of the occurrence of crime," Mykola Siryi said during the court hearing, according to Tymoshenko's official website.

He recalled the events of Friday, when neither the judge nor the state prosecution could explain the nature of the charges against Yulia Tymoshenko. "During the session on Friday the absence of occurrence of crime was proven by legal means in accordance with Article 298 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which requires that the court explain the event of crime. If the court can’t explain and it’s stated that there is no occurrence of crime, the case should be closed," said the lawyer.
