 U.S. State Department: Actions Against Vlasenko Are Politically Motivated

U.S. State Department is concerned with the events matter regarding Serhii Vlasenko, whose parliamentary mandate may be revoked today, March 6.

Radio Liberty reports that the U.S. State Department said in a statement that the measures being taken to take away Vlasenko's mandate "are politically motivated because of his connection with Yulia Tymoshenko."

The State Department also mentioned Pavlo Baloha and Oleksandr Dombrovskyy whose mandates were taken away by the court in February.
