Political Prosecutions in Ukraine: The Case of Yulia Tymoshenko
The winter of 2013 to 2014 made a mark in the history of Ukraine. It was a time of mourning for the heroes killed during the Revolution of Dignity, and a time of joy from the victory. It was a time when the Ukrainian nation was particularly angry and, at the same time, endlessly kind to one another. Our nation’s palette of feelings and emotions was as bright as ever. It was a time when a new Ukraine—a country of free people—was born. These events have once again proven that it is worth fighting for justice.
The Revolution of Dignity was preceded by the events of 2010 to 2013 (the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych). The illegality of authorities’ actions during this period could be qualified as a threat to the rule of law in Ukraine.
