Julia Tymoshenko Released As Ukrainian Protesters Take Over Kiev

Via The Guardian:

Ukraine’s parliament voted Saturday to release former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko from jail in a session that also saw the appointment of a new Interior Minister and the dismissal of the country’s top prosecutor.

Applause broke out in the Verkhovna Rada as 322 out of the 331 deputies present approved a decree for the release of Tymoshenko, an avowed foe of embattled President Viktor Yanukovych.
