Commentary and Analysis: Yanukovych’s pardon of Yuriy Lutsenko

April 9, 2013 - Example Author - New Eastern Europe newsletter

On April 7th 2013,  the President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, signed a decree pardoning six prisoners, including the former minister of the interior, Yuri Lutsenko and the former minister of environment, Georgiy Filipchuk. The decision came after the country's Ombudsman, Valeriya Lutkovska, petitioned for their release. On Saturday April 6th the presidential committee for pardons recommended that the president should positively react to these petitions.

In response to the news, we asked colleagues and analysts to provide with us their short interpretation of the events as they unfolded:
