People pass by a large poster of Ukraine's imprisoned former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko next to the Euro 2012 Fan Zone in Kiev, Ukraine, Saturday evening, June 30, 2012. A Ukrainian court on last Tuesday again postponed Tymoshenko's appeal hearing against her seven-year jail sentence, in what her lawyers say is an attempt by the government to prevent her seeking justice in the European Court of Human Rights. Tymoshenko is seeking to overturn an abuse of office conviction the West has condemned as politically motivated. Tymoshenko's jailing in October has led to complaints from Washington and Brussels, and a boycott by Western leaders of Euro 2012 football championship games hosted by Ukraine.
