 No One in Diplomatic Corps Takes Prosecution's Non-Sense Seriously. Ukraine-EU Summit is at Risk, Says Former Foreign Minister Tarasiuk

The diplomat says that Shcherban case may invalidate EU-Ukraine summit.

Former Minister of Foreign Affairs and opposition deputy Borys Tarasiuk commented to Censor.NET on the prospects of European integration of Ukraine in connection with the developments in Tymoshenko's case.

"The EU and the U.S. do not believe the current authorities. Even if they were telling the truth, they would not believe them. There has been so much lies already and so much negativity that no one wants to take them seriously. It is obvious to me that the accusations are trumped up to secure the regime if the European Court of Human Rights will rule on the acquittal of Tymoshenko and Lutsenko. They understand that and are producing such terrible accusations to keep Tymoshenko in prison as long as possible," said Tarasiuk.

"My contacts with representatives of the diplomatic corps in Kyiv and Brussels say that no one takes the PGO's stories seriously. This situation could have a negative impact on the issue of European integration, including the cancellation of the summit on February 25," he added.
