Topic: Yulia Tymoshenko case
KIEV, January 22 (RIA Novosti) - Outgoing US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has sent a letter to jailed former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, saying the US supports her “immediate release,” Tymoshenko’s party said on Tuesday.
“The United States supports your immediate release. I hope the new year brings new prospects for your release and wish you a return to good health," the letter, released by Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party, reads.
Tymoshenko, once the main political opponent of President Viktor Yanukovych, was sentenced in October 2011 to seven years in prison for abuse of office after negotiating an allegedly unfavorable gas deal between Russia and Ukraine in January 2009.
Last Friday Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said Tymoshenko was officially notified about being a suspect in the 1996 killing of Ukrainian businessman and lawmaker Yevhen Shcherban. She faces life in prison if convicted.

- mrgenieI'd laugh, if it weren't so sad11:49, 23/01/2013Clinton sending a letter to a super criminal, a woman who has betrayed her country, a woman who ordered the killing of her opponents in the 90s.
There are people who are real innocent, and not only in the Ukraine! In Russia, Europe and yes even in the USA people are in prison because of mistakes. Do all those people get a letter from Clinton?
Does she say:"sorry" to any of the families of executed people that later were proven to be innocent?
No she doesn't! The only reason why I would send letters to criminals and support criminals, while abandoning true innocent people, is if I were a big criminal myself! So Miss Clinton, it's obvious you are a criminal and committed very big crimes, else you wouldn't support criminals. So what are you guilty of?

The failure of the Islamist political parties who came to power in the dramatic events of the Arab Spring would allow the military to reenter the political arena. Political Islam was successful in the opposition, but it could fail in power, as the negative experience of Egypt and Iraq have shown.
