The court hearing is being attended by journalists and MPs, namely about ten MPs from the Party of Regions and 15-20 opposition members. French Ambassador for Human Rights Francois Zimeray, who arrived in Ukraine for the trial, is also present in the courtroom.
As a reminder, Ukraine's former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko refused to take part in a preliminary hearing the United Energy Systems of Ukraine case, referring to the bad health conditions.
