Ukraine’s ex-PM Tymoshenko freed from prison

Former Ukrainian PM Yulia Tymoshenko was released Saturday after more than two years in prison, her party says.

Tymoshenko is on her way from the prison where she was held in Kharkiv, Ukraine, to join with protesters in Kiev.

A peace deal brokered between her rival, Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych, and the opposition allowed for her release.
