Our Ukraine comes to defense of Tymoshenko, Lutsenko, Didenko, Makarenko in statement
The Our Ukraine Party has criticized the "selective and repressive methods" used by the authorities in relation to criminal cases against opposition representatives.
"Our Ukraine is opposed to the methods being applied by the authorities in the cases of Yulia Tymoshenko, Yuriy Lutsenko, Ihor Didenko, and Anatoliy Makarenko, which are selective and repressive," the party said in a statement posted on its Web site on Wednesday.
Our Ukraine said it was ready to defend human rights together with other political forces and non-governmental organizations.
"The inability to provide a fair and unbiased procedure in cases against members of the opposition has come to a critical point. Crossing this line, the authorities will face a united and consolidated response not only from its political opponents, but also from the whole of society," the statement reads.
