Tymoshenko Believes Sumy Bombing Was 'Political'
7 years
Batkivshchyna Office Bombed In Sumy
Ukrainska Pravda reports that the leader of the Batkivshchyna party, Yulia Tymoshenko, has claimed that the bombing of the party's office in the city of Sumy last night was "political."


In a statement issued by the party's press office, Tymoshenko said that investigators at the scene had now found the remains of an explosive device.

The Interpreter translates:

"There is no doubt that the explosion was a terrorist act and was deliberately organised. In our opinion, the grounds for the bombing were political," said Tymoshenko.

She added that the Sumy regional organisation of the party "had become the centre for collecting all the indisputable proof of corruption in the fixing of housing and utility tariffs."

Tymoshenko said that the Sumy branch of her party had uncovered evidence of gas usage rates being distorted by more than three times the actual consumption by households. 

According to the Batkivshchyna leader, the head of the Sumy regional branch had come under pressure after exposing the corruption in the city's executive and passing the information on to the Prosecutor-General's office.
