Ukraine – Ms. Yulia Tymoshenko's appeal rejected (August 30, 2012)
France deeply regrets the Ukrainian Court of Appeal’s rejection of the appeal proceedings brought by former Ukrainian Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko.
Once again, we reaffirm our concern about developments in the political situation in Ukraine and urge the Ukrainian authorities to uphold their commitments relating to the respect for fundamental freedoms and rights.
Selective justice and the failure to respect the rule of law in Ukraine can only hinder further rapprochement with the EU, and notably the signing of the EU-Ukraine association agreement.
