Former Ukrainian interior minister Yuri Lutsenko believes that the ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko may be released through pardon, as he was.

Lutsenko said this today in an interview after the meeting with the observers of the European Parliament Alexander Kwasniewski and Pat Cox.

According to the ex-minister, during a meeting with representatives of the EU, the release of Tymoshenko was also discussed among other issues. "I can not speak for Mr. Kwasniewski. I know only that we discussed with him one hundred percent analogy for Lutsenko and Tymoshenko cases," Lutsenko said.

He noted that, according to the information available, the Commission of Pardons under the President of Ukraine "prepares a report on the alleged difference between the cases of Lutsenko and Tymoshenko as other Tymoshenko’s cases are not completed yet".

Lutsenko explained that the "gas case" of Tymoshenko is completed in the national courts, Tymoshenko has health problems, and she "may be pardoned in the same way as it was done with Lutsenko."

As for other cases involving Tymoshenko, which are not completed, then legally it is not provided as an obstacle to the President's decision on pardon, the ex-minister added.
