Former President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko has arrived at the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv where he will testify as a witness for the prosecution in the trial of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to her official website.

The former head of state entered the courtroom to shouts of "Shame!" from the audience.

The president’s former advisor on energy issues, Bohdan Sokolovsky, has also come to court.

Yesterday the court informed that a letter had been received from a representative of Viktor Yushchenko saying that he would not be able to testify because he was outside the country and requesting that his testimony from the pre-trial investigation be read aloud instead.

At the request of the defense, the court send another summons to Viktor Yushchenko and ordered Bohdan Sokolovsky’s mandatory appearance in court.
