This is declared in the statement of ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, reports the press service of Batkivschyna.
"I emphasize again that he is a public defender, not a lawyer.
Thanks to the highly professional work of his team, the Ukraine and the democratic world know all the details and see the absurdity of judicial harassment, arranged against me.
Thanks to Serhii Vlasenko and his team, the European Court of Human Rights has clear legal arguments sufficient for the Court to stop the political repressions that have become a marker of modern authoritarian Ukraine of Yanukovych.
Precisely because Serhii Vlasenko is doing a superb job, the dictator gave his team an order to destroy him.
As always, it is done illegally and violently.
I want to thank Serhii for the two years during which he selflessly protected me, and ask the opposition politicians and the leaders of the democratic world to save Serhii Vlasenko and not allow a dictator to desecrate his life. He is guilty only of one thing - defending me.
