The conflict between the European Union and the Ukrainian government over its treatment of jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko appears to be entering a new, more intense stage. On Friday, around 2,000 Tymoshenko supporters held a rally in the Ukrainian capital Kiev. Members of her party also blockaded the Ukrainian parliament in protest.
