he Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine has declared lawful the claims of the Prosecutor General's Office and the State Tax Service against the former head of the United Energy Systems of Ukraine corporation (UESU), Yulia Tymoshenko, for not paying taxes when using in the 1990s funds from the credit card of the Somolli Enterprises Limited company, UKRINFORM reports.

The decision was announced on Monday by the presiding judge, Oleksandr Nechytailo, having dismissed the appeal by Tymoshenko and her lawyer Borys Nechyporenko against a decision of the District Administrative Court of Kyiv and Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals, which abolished a decision of Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv of February 1, 2005 to close the proceedings in the case on the funds from the Somolli Enterprises Limited card.

Commenting on the decision, lawyer Borys Nechyporenko said: "I am now completely convinced that there is no justice in Ukraine, because even in Soviet times the judges could not allow this".

As reported, under the court ruling in the case, Tymoshenko must pay UAH 954,676 in taxes and UAH 1,355,908 million in financial sanctions.

Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years in prison for abuse of office due to the signing of gas contracts with Russia in 2009. She is serving her prison sentence in the Kachanivska penal colony in Kharkiv.

Several more criminal cases, including the one concerning the activities of the United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation, which she once led, were also opened against Tymoshenko.
