Ukrainian Prime Minister Tymoshenko's Trip to Russia Postponed at Last Minute

A planned visit by Ukrainian Prime Minister Yuliya Tymoshenko to Moscow set for 15-16 April has been postponed, Ukrainian news agencies reported on 13 April.

The Ukrainian government said Tymoshenko's visit was delayed because President Yushchenko told her to tackle urgent problems associated with the spring sowing campaign and rising fuel prices. However, Ukrainian Economics Minister Serhiy Teryokhin said earlier that the visit was put off because of the recent remarks of Russian Prosecutor-General Vladimir Ustinov, "Ukrayinska pravda"' reported.

Ustinov said on 12 April that Tymoshenko could come to Russia in accordance with international legislation and protocol, but he said charges against her have not been dropped and she is still on the wanted list. Last January, Ustinov said that a Russian court could issue an arrest warrant for Tymoshenko and in that case she could be detained by police if she traveled to Russia.
