Yulia Tymoshenko’s lawyers are ready to appeal the October 11 ruling of the Pechersk District Court in the criminal case brought against the ex-premier over gas contracts signed with Russia in 2009.

“The appeal is ready. We are proofreading and agreeing it, and it will soon be filed. As soon as the appeal is finalized, it will be signed and submitted [to the Kyiv Court of Appeals] in accordance with the law,” said Serhiy Vlasenko, the head of Yulia Tymoshenko’s defense team, according to Tymoshenko's official website.

In their appeal, Yulia Tymoshenko’s lawyers recounted all the violations committed during the pre-trial investigation and trial. “We addressed the basic and most serious violations that took place during the investigation and the trial,” Serhiy Vlasenko said.

Wednesday, October 26, is the final day the defense can file its appeal of Yulia Tymoshenko's sentence.
