 Ministry of Foreign Affairs Panics: Introduction of EU Sanctions Against Authors of Tymoshenko Case is Settling Accounts

Initiation of sanctions by Europe in regard to Ukrainian officials is the settling of accounts in response to a criminal case against former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

This was stated by the Information Policy Director of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine Oleh Voloshyn, reports Liga.

"The imposition of sanctions against members of law enforcement agencies for doing their job looks strange in the least. This refers to those involved in the imprisonment of Tymoshenko. That is, it is a settling of accounts," said Voloshyn on Channel 5.

According to Voloshyn, personal sanctions must be introduced when there is systemic corruption or serious human rights violation.

As we have previously reported the International organization Freedom House will initiate the introduction of personal sanctions against Ukrainian top officials.
