Tymoshenko charged with misusing funds

Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko has been charged with misusing state funds while serving as prime minister, her spokeswoman says, according to BBC. Tymoshenko is suspected of misspending money Ukraine received from the selling of its carbon emission rights under the Kyoto protocol. She has denied the allegations, saying she is being targeted for standing up to President Viktor Yanukovych. Tymoshenko lost the premiership in March following a no-confidence vote.
