    MOSCOW, December 26 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Military Prosecutor's Office has withdrawn its case against former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yuliya Tymoshenko due to the statute of limitations, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office said Monday.

    "The Military Prosecutor's Office closed the case on former head of the industrial financial corporation Unified Energy Systems of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko," the office said.

    Tymoshenko was charged with bribing Russian Defense Ministry officials to secure contracts and inflicting $100 million in damages on Russia while she was head of a commercial firm. She was placed on the international wanted list after refusing to appear for questioning in Russia.
