Tymoshenko bashes at Poroshenko, accusing him of dealings with Putin

Addressing journalists in Lviv today, presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko said she would not step down in favor of presidential candidate Petro Poroshenko, citing him as her major opponent, our correspondent reports May 2.

 “I will never step down in the presidential race in favor of the candidate representing Ukraine oligarchs,” she said.  

 “If Poroshenko’s approval rating is so high why I am approached by his envoys asking me to leave the race,” she said

Tymoshenko accused Poroshenko of meeting with tycoon Dmytro Firtash in Austria after the latter’s arrest and release on bail. Poroshenko, she said, then struck a strategic agreement with Firtash.

Following the meeting, Poroshenko’s chocolate plants and bank accounts in Russia were de-blocked, she went on. “Such things don’t happen without Putin’s blessing,” Tymoshenko stressed.
Tymoshenko also said Ukraine tycoons want to see Tihipko as premier and Vitali Klitschko as mayor of Kyiv.

She apologized to Ukrainians for failing to uproot the influence of tycoons on power during her tenure as premier.

There are no political teams in Ukraine, there is a single team called Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko said, speaking in a national talk show late Sept. 22, Ukrayinska Pravda reports.

Her team will help Pres Poroshenko to defend the country, she assured.

However, Tymoshenko believes Ukraine must have a new defense minister. She criticized Valery Heletej, saying that, as a police general, he has no experience to manage the armed forces.

 “I would like the president to meet with Gen. Mykola Petruk,” Tymoshenko said, praising him for his organizing and combat skills and supporting him for a new defense minister.

Petruk has the aptitude to organize the defense of the country, Tymoshenko said.

Describing the future election campaign, he said “It will be a competition of ideas, concepts and ways for the development of Ukraine.”

“I have a great hope that we will be able to evade any dirty electoral tricks – in a war-torn country politicians cannot afford a domestic war,” he said.

 “I do not rule out that further unification of democratic candidates can take place,” Poroshenko said referring to his recent joining forces with UDAR’s leader Vitali Klitschko.

 “We believe the unification process will be supported by other democratic parties and NGOs,” he said.
