Tymoshenko Discussed

KIEV — Ukraine's president is hinting that new legislation being debated in parliament may allow reconsideration of the case of jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

In an interview with leading Ukrainian television channels Friday night, President Viktor Yanukovych said he is interested in finding the "right solution" and reviewing Tymoshenko's case according to "European standards."

Yanukovych also floated the possibility of a pardon and said he could step in after the appeals process, which still continues.

"What can happen next? Pardoning," he said. "This issue will be up to me."
