The opposition is not going to discuss the issue of Tymoshenko release with the authorities - WikiYulia


This was announced by UDAR Party leader Vitalii Klitschko answering to the journalists questions in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. According to him, they are not going to raise the issue of Yulia Tymoshenko release during the upcoming negotiations with the government. The negotiations will focus on the ways to overcome the political crisis in the country. At the same time, Klitschko stressed that, generally speaking, the issue of political prisoners release is still of current concern in Ukraine. A state cannot be considered democratic if it has political prisoners, and it concerns our state in particular as we have too many of them in Ukraine, said UDAR leader. Recall that according to the opinion surveys, Klitschko is slightly ahead of Tymoshenko in presidential rating. Therefore, he wouldn’t get any benefits from the former Prime Minister release.
