KIEV, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Media reports on talks between Ukraine’s presidential chief of staff Andrei Klyuyev and leader of the opposition Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party, jailed Yulia Timoshenko do not correspond with reality, Klyuyev’s spokesperson Artyom Petrenko told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Of course, this information is untrue,” he said. “It is clear that representatives of the authorities take many steps to get out of the crisis. Possibly, they hold talks at different levels, but there have been no talks between Klyuyev and Timoshenko.”
The team of Timoshenko, who had been serving a seven year sentence for abuse of power at the gas talks with Russia in 2009, denied the fact of the talks.
“We do not make comments on this nonsense,” a spokesperson for ex-prime minister, Marina Soroka, told Itar-Tass.
The Kommersant Ukraine daily reported on Tuesday that Klyuyev allegedly held talks with Timoshenko to discuss the creation of a majority coalition by the Party of Regions and Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party in the parliament.
