KIEV, August 24 (Itar-Tass) — Convicted ex-premier of Ukraine Yulia Timoshenko has addressed the Ukrainian nation on the occasion of Independence Day this Friday.
She called for rising up to fight. Nobody has the right to be neutral, she stressed.
Timoshenko said any form of fight may be chosen against the mafia, which has seized the country and the peaceful life of families.
"Act independently or with a team, in open or confidential ways, only act, defending yourselves and your family. It is not fight of the opposition against authorities. The forthcoming election is a struggle of all reasonable and strong people against the absolute evil that is growing and strengthening," Timoshenko noted.
The ex-premier reminded Ukrainian citizens about their pride, dignity, intellect, wisdom, decisiveness and responsibility.
The united opposition this Friday organizes a march in Kiev that will end with a meeting near the Shevchenko monument.
