The Minister of Emergencies Viktor Baloga wrote on his Facebook page that if the resolution is implemented as proposed Ukraine will not avoid international isolation. "This document may become a signal to other civilized countries who may follow suit and prohibit certain officials from entering the country," noted the minister.
"You know that I was never a supporter of Tymoshenko and Lutsenko but the decision on their incarceration and how it was done are unacceptable in a democratic society," stressed Baloga.
"I am afraid that the document will isolate not only the authorities but also 45 million Ukrainian who have nothing to do with Tymoshenko's incarceration. I mean regular people who travel, visit conferences, go on vacation, study abroad. The officials will have places to go. They will still have Russia, and that is 1/6 of the land, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and very close there is Belarus. At the very least there will be Albania but that is not a fact," wrote the minister.
