Tymoshenko – dampened hopes

Even though today’s post is not on hair, I think that it is an important follow-up on my previous post on Yulia Tymoshenko’s potential arrest break for medical treatment.

Unfortunately these hopes were destroyed today with the Ukrainian parliament closing the talks on this issue without a result.

This failure might endanger the ratification of the association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, which had demanded the release of Tymoshenko as prerequisite for signing the treaty.

The miss of this opportunity is particularly disappointing, as it was President Yanukowich himself, who had raised hope on a disimprisonment by saying that he would sign any such legislation if it was passed by parliament. – In which his people represent the majority.
