 Azarov's Minister: Ukraine Will Not Avoid International Isolation. Ordinary Ukrainians Will Suffer

The resolution of the US Senate is a very serious signal.

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.
