18:34 01/09/2011

KIEV, September 1 - RAPSI. The Kiev District Court dismissed most of the appeals filed by former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, including her requests to admit as evidence pre-investigation materials in the "gas case", RIA Novosti reports.

Tymoshenkos defense filed petitions seeking court permission to present a video of investigators actions, as well as to read certain case documents in full, and to admit into evidence other documents the defense considers related to the case.

Tymoshenko accused the judge of concealing the case materials.

Judge Rodion Kireyev called Tymoshenkos behavior a "provocation."

The Ukrainian Prosecutor Generals Office has charged Tymoshenko with abuse of power in connection with her approval of a Russian gas contract in 2009, when she served as prime minister.

Tymoshenko was arrested on August 5.
