An article of 7 March (“UK banks in row over the Tymoshenko ‘millions’”) referred to a leaked report alleging that Ukraine’s ex-PM Yulia Tymoshenko held numerous UK bank accounts. The report was produced in parallel to a wider investigation by London law firm, Lawrence Graham, which was instructed last year by the Ukrainian Ministry of Revenues and Duties. However, Lawrence Graham have asked us to clarify that they did not commission the report in question and were not aware of its findings. We are happy to set the record straight.
In relation to the same article, representatives of Yulia Tymoshenko have asked us to reiterate her position that the report’s allegations are without foundation.
