KIEV, September 12 - RAPSI. A Kiev district court granted today former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko extra time to prepare for her arguments, declaring a recess until September 27, RIA Novosti reports.
"We had extremely little time," Tymoshenko said at the Monday hearing, while adding that neither she nor her defense attorneys managed to read the final volumes of her case.
The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office has charged Tymoshenko with abuse of power in approving a gas contract between Russian Gazprom and Ukrainian Naftogaz in 2009, while she was serving as prime minister. She was arrested on August 5.
