The thief, I expect, has since been released, perhaps even patted on the back and offered some smokes.

2. Viktor Yanukovych is still President, Viktor Pshonka Prosecutor General, and Volodymyr Rybak Speaker [of the Ukrainian Parliament].

A very strict visa regime should be implemented against these people. And the complicated process for issuing visas for ordinary citizens should be facilitated for entry into the EU,” said Harms.
