KIEV, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine's former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is standing trial in Kiev, has used Facebook to call on her supporters to keep up unity.
Those subscribed to her page in Facebook could read her appeal Wednesday. She thanked her supporters for their resolve, saying: "No prison bars and no walls will ever be capable of disuniting us."
"This is a time when we must stay united as never before," Timoshenko wrote. "Each word of support, every reliable shoulder and every common victory are precious as gold. The courage and concord of honest people is what fills every dictator with fright and what sweeps /dictatorial/ regimes away."
Timoshenko was taken to the Lukyanovsky custody center exactly two months ago, August 5.
"It is only the moments when we have to choose whether we side with treachery and slavery or with genuine human values that make our life meaningful," she wrote in her appeal. "Now we are going through the moment of choise -- a choise between light and darkness."
Kiev's Pechersky district court plans to start reading out the sentence on Timoshenko's case October 1. She is accused of exceeding her occupational powers when she signed agreements with Russia on the prices of natural gas in 2009.
The Prosecutor General's Office claims the agreements she reached with the Russian authorities put the Ukrainian state into a loss of about $ 200 million.
