Ukraine's parliament on Thursday voted against all six bills that would have allowed jailed ex-premier Yulia Tymoshenko to go abroad for treatment, dealing a potentially fatal to blow to the chances of signing an association deal with the EU this month.

The Verkhovna Rada rejected the bills that had been put forward on the treatment of convicts abroad, after they failed to gain the support of President Viktor Yanukovych's ruling Regions Party. Opposition lawmakers shouted "shame" as the bills were rejected.
