Hundreds of supporters of former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko rallied in central Kiev yesterday in a tense standoff with security forces after a Ukraine court convicted her of abuse of power. A Ukrainian judge sentenced the opposition leader to seven years in jail for abusing her powers in a 2009 gas deal with Russia, a verdict that is set to harm ties with the European Union. The verdict has sparked strong international reactions.
