KIEV, March 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former Prime Minister and ex-convict Yulia Timoshenko has called on the people of Ukraine to unite.
“The most important task now is unity of the people,” she said at a congress of her Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party, choosing to say several sentences in the Russian language. “Let’s stop fighting. We need the words and the principles that will infuse the entire country with new energies.
Along with it, she revealed her plans “to wage a personal war on oligarchs”.
Timoshenko believes that Ukraine needs to get integrated in the EU “within the shortest term possible.” “Given the current situation, it’s important to integrate in the Western defense alliances but Ukraine should continue building efficient Armed Forces all the same.”
In the meantime, one of the oligarchs, confectionery business tycoon Pytro Poroshenko has called on Timoshenko to support him as a united candidate for the presidential post.
Poroshenko gave the assurances that Timoshenko would not be a political contender for him.
A similar appeal to Timoshenko was made at the congress of UDAR party, Vitaly Klitschko, who urged the former prime minister to back up Poroshenko.
The oligarch said that even if Timoshenko rejected the offer to support him at the election, it would be necessary to ensure the unity of democratic forces after the election, too.
