KIEV, March 29 /ITAR-TASS/. Vitali Klitschko, an international boxing star presiding over Ukraine’s rightwing UDAR party, has appealed to former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko to support a united candidate for presidency in the May 25 presidential election.
A statement made at an UDAR congress earlier Saturday suggested that the role of the united candidate might be tried on by oligarch Pytro Poroshenko, a confectionery industry tycoon.
Timoshenko, a former controversial prime minister and an ex-convict, made public her own presidential ambitions last week.
In the meantime, Klitschko and Poroshenko signed a ‘declaration on unification’ at the congress that envisions, among other things, the pooling of efforts during the election campaign
Klischko also unveiled his own plans saying he was going to run for the post of Kiev’s mayor.
