The Ukrainian parliament has voted to to allow the release of jailed opposition figure Yulia Tymoshenko.
Tymoshenko is the leader of Ukraine’s largest opposition political party, “Fatherland.” A heroine of the 2004 Orange Revolution, she was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2011 for abuse of power. Her supporters say the charges were trumped up by her arch rival, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
18.26. Bill number 2023, which means the release of Yulia Tymoshenko voted with 310 votes!
