LVOV, August 20 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine’s opposition Batkivshchina Party will nominate former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko for president at the presidential election in 2015, the chairman of the party’s political council, Aresny Yetsenyuk, said at the Ukrainian World Congress that opened in Lvov on Tuesday.
“We have decided that Yulia Timoshenko will be our party’s candidate,” Yatsenyuk said. He declined to answer the question whether several opposition candidates could be nominated.
Timoshenko currently serves a seven-year prison term for abuse of power in the signing of gas agreements with Russia.
