KIEV, September 28 - RAPSI. A sentence to former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko may be passed by the end of the week, Tymoshenko's attorney said.

The Prosecutor General's Office charged Tymoshenko with abusing her power by signing gas supply agreements on behalf of Ukraine with Gazprom and Naftogaz in 2009, when she was a prime minister. She was arrested on August 5. The opposition accused the authorities of political repressions, but the government firmly denies the accusations.

The State Prosecution demanded on Tuesday that Tymoshenko be sentenced to seven years in prison.

The prosecution also requested to prohibit Tymoshenko from holding public offices for three years as well as recover from her $187million in losses incurred to Naftogaz of Ukraine and legal expenses.
