Batkivshchyna Party leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is insisting that the court change the measure of restraint imposed on her given that the review of the seventh volume of the investigation proves that she did not commit a crime.

“With every day that the materials are read aloud the case falls apart even more. Yesterday you read letters from the Prosecutor General’s Office and Ministry of Justice that clearly stated that directives from the Cabinet of Ministers weren’t required for talks between Naftohaz and Gazprom. The first part of the indictment on abuse of power yesterday fell apart to the core. Today it was the second part,” Yulia Tymoshenko said in court, according to her official website.

Yulia Tymoshenko highlighted that the seventh volume of the criminal case also says that there were no losses to the state, as alleged in the charges. “You reviewed the seventh volume. Pages 81 to 95 of this documents are about the alleged damages caused to the state. These are accounting documents. In these records it says that the price for technical gas was the same in 2009 as it was in 2008. This means that there were no losses,” said the ex-premier.

Yulia Tymoshenko said that this points to the fact that there is no reason to keep her in jail. “If there were no losses, no abuse of power, then why I am being forced to remain behind bars? These documents have already been reviewed in court. I can say that after the review of the seventh volume, there can simply be no case,” she said.

Yulia Tymoshenko also said she plans to file a motion after the stage of review of evidence to close the criminal case due to the absence of the element of crime in her actions.
