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.
