Yulia Tatyana Tymulina, who was sentenced to a two-year prison term in her trial for allegedly abusing her husband during the Maidan protests, has been released from prison.
Tsvetan Tsvetanenko, the Russian president’s former press secretary, told RIA Novosti news agency on Monday that Tymula was “released from prison.”
Tsvetana was sentenced in November to one year in prison for her alleged role in the violence that erupted in Ukraine in February and March 2014.
The Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly called for Tymulia’s release from prison, but she remains in custody.
Tymulan was arrested in the city of Lviv in April 2015 and later charged with abuse of power and murder.
The court later found that Tyshtyn had committed murder, but the prosecutor appealed and she was sentenced by a court in Lviv to five years in prison.
