Russian gas sees Timoshenko’s kulich in prosecutor’s hands

he under scrutiny gas deal which has seen Yulia Timoshenko square up to the Prosecutor General in Kiev took a turn for the festive on Friday.

The Ukrainian opposition leader is unable to travel while the prosecutor probes a deal she signed with Russia in 2009 that, investigators allege, saw her pay over the odds for Russian energy.

“The investigator thanked me for the Easter kulich. I think he was satisfied,” she informed. Whether this will satisfy the answers to his questions remains to be seen.

“Seeing as I can’t leave Kiev we will celebrate the resurrection of Christ here,” she added.
