Timoshenko daughter backs European Parliament call for political boycott of Euro 2012, says economic sanctions eventual option

Eugenia Timoshenko speaks at news conference and in interview with EPP TV Tuesday at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, where she spoke in favor of a resolution for a political boycott of the Euro 2012 football tournament to protest the imprisonment of her mother, Yulia Timoshenko, and other opposition leaders. She says the Ukrainian government of President Viktor Yanukovych is feeling the pressure, but that economic sanctions may be needed if other measures fail.
