Well, that's mighty big of them

By Aussiegirl

The Los Angeles Times reports that Russia has decided not to arrest Yulia Tymoshenko (on trumped up charges) upon her arrival in Moscow.
Russia will not arrest Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko if she travels to Moscow, though criminal charges against her remain in force, local media quoted Russia's prosecutor general as saying.

As a senior government official, Tymoshenko enjoys immunity from arrest, Vladimir Ustinov said.
(No relation to Peter Ustinov, the recently departed British actor famed for playing Nero and other sissified decadent Roman types, I presume.)
