YULIA Tymoshenko has been imprisoned by Ukrainian regime for 2,5 years now and her arrest was found illegal by European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France this year.
Her politically motivated incarceration shocked the democratic world. European leaders and US Government, Canadian Government and the rest of the democratic world leaders have voiced their great concern and demanded President Yanukovych to free her as her trial was politically motivated. They boycotted EURO-2012 Football championship, put on hold Association Agreement and halted further negotiations with regime until this unacceptable human rights violation is corrected & Tymoshenko is freed to receive back surgery that she desperately needs.
Maydan is standing in Kiev and hundred thousands of people want her free
Response to Petition
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Ukraine with us through We the People.
The people of Ukraine have the right to define their own future -- peacefully and in an atmosphere of stability. The United States stands with them, as we have for 22 years.
We also welcome that former Prime Minister Tymoshenko has been released and is able to finally receive the medical care she needs.
We welcome your interest on Ukrainian issues: There is a lot of talk about Ukraine these days, and not all of what we're seeing reported is accurate. To continue this conversation on the United States' engagement with Ukraine, please visit the website of the Embassy of the United States in Kyiv, follow them on Facebook, or check out the Twitter feed of Geoffrey Pyatt, the United States Ambassador to Ukraine.
