MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — Ukrainian oppositionists believe that it will be easier to obtain the release of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate than the former prime minister.
Yulia Timoshenko’s supporters intend to nominate her candidacy for the Nobel Peace Prize. The signup campaign was launched on the outskirts of Kharkov near the Kachanovskaya penitentiary, where the former prime minister serves her sentence. The initiators place two tents right in the middle of the street and began luring people to join the signup campaign.
“When we collect all the signatures, we will submit the signup lists to the Norwegian Nobel Prize committee,” deputy chairman of the Batkivshchina regional branch Valery Dudko told the Izvestia daily.
