KIEV, September 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Yulia Timoshenko, the leader of Ukraine’s party Batkivshchina and former prime minister, said on Sunday she did not believe in President Petr Poroshenko’s peace plan for eastern Ukraine.
“I don’t believe in the peace plan of the Ukrainian president, and consider the three-party talks in Minsk as a deceit,” she said in an interview with the Inter television channel. “Minsk is a fraud seeking to disarm the army and make Europe and America ease sanctions (against Russia) or cancel them at all.”
She said that warfare was not an obstacle for reforms, since these reforms would help Ukraine to win. “We must act but not sign memorandums that are means to disarm us. We must win a victory and carry out reforms all the same,” Timoshenko stressed.
Timoshenko’s interview was a kind of response to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s Sunday interview where he had said he belonged to the party of peace.
