Ukrainians react to Tymoshenko's jail sentence over gas deal
A court in the Ukraine has sentenced the country's former prime-minister Yulia Tymoshenko to seven years in jail.
A judge ruled the ex-prime minister had criminally exceeded her powers when she signed a gas deal with Russia in 2009.
Mrs Tymoshenko said the charges were politically motivated.
There was a mixed reaction to the verdict on the streets of Kiev.
