KIEV, September 30 - RAPSI. Judge Rodion Kereyev said on Friday that the Kiev court will pronounce a sentence to former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko on October 11, RIA Novosti reported.

Tymoshenko refused to make a final speech today in the Kiev district court. Meanwhile, she asked the judge to give her time until Monday to prepare her last word.
The judge said that the defendant has a right to make a final speech but is not obliged to do so.

The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's 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.
