Former Ukrainian PM Yulia Tymoshenko escaped arrest warrant

Russian prosecutors have canceled an arrest warrant for former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko; the Interfax news agency reported Monday.

Tymoshenko had been accused of bribing Russian defense officials while she headed Ukraine's main gas distributor, the now-defunct United Energy Systems.

Interfax said Russia's main military prosecutor's office had canceled the international arrest warrant it had issued a year ago because Tymoshenko had provided investigators with necessary "explanations" over the weekend and agreed to show up voluntarily for questioning in the future, reports the AP.
