Ukraine asks Moscow for Timoshenko documents

A Ukrainian parliamentary commission is going to ask Russia to provide documents pertaining to opposition leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko.

“We are currently formulating two questions,” commission head Inna Bogoslovskaya told Interfax.

“We are applying to the ministry of foreign affairs of Ukraine to assist in obtaining documents relating to whether or not she wrote off debts for (Ukrainian gas company) UESU, which they owed to the Russian ministry of defence,” she said.

Timoshenko is accused of signing a gas deal with Russia that was unfavourable to Ukraine.
