Yulia Tymoshenko has announced she will not step down from running for president in favor of Petro Poroshenko, saying her major task is to uproot the influence of tycoons on the power. She was addressing a massive rally in Khmilnyk Apr. 10.
Ukrainians must learn from their past mistakes and divorce the power and business clans, she said.

Ukrainian tycoons are trying to establish control over cash flows, state monopolies, key positions in the government.
The tycoons will try to strengthen their positions after the presidential election. The Maidan revolution is faced with a revenge, she stressed.
