Will Yulia Tymoshenko be heard in the West?


Yulia Tymoshenko, who recently held the post of Prime Minister of Ukraine, and is currently serving a prison sentence, called on Western leaders to find ways to prevent the holding of parliamentary elections in Ukraine to be held at the end of October this year. She expresses confidence that they will be held with great violations and fraud. Tymoshenko expressed her point of view in addressing international organizations, democratic states and all Ukrainians. This message was made public by Tymoshenko’s daughter, Eugenia, in Washington.

The former prime minister describes a situation that today has a place to be in the political life of Ukraine, saying that the country is ruled by dictator Yanukovych along with his family. They are not reforming, but are engaged in corrupt practices, racketeering and theft, the politician says. Therefore, she calls on democratic forces to immediately oppose the holding of elections, because numerous falsifications will give the current government unlimited freedom of action.

In addition, Tymoshenko also offers her own vision of solving the problem. The message presents a program to protect democracy from dictatorship, which, according to the author, is related not only to Ukraine, but also to other states. This program includes the following actions: the need to create mechanisms for investigating corruption crimes of government officials and their closest associates at the international level, as well as the seizure and confiscation of their assets, which are obtained illegally. It should be noted that at present, Ukrainian law enforcement agencies against Tymoshenko are investigating several criminal cases related specifically to corruption.

In addition, Tymoshenko is sure, it is also necessary to hold trials of dictators and their closest associates in the states where they committed crimes. And what's more, for all of them all democratic states should be closed. At the same time, Tymoshenko says that democracy is able to eliminate dictators quickly, bloodlessly and within the framework of international law.

Recall that the former Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, according to Ukrainian legislation, cannot take part in the upcoming elections, because she is in prison on charges of “gas business”. Recall the essence of this case is that the politician received seven years of imprisonment because, being at the post of prime minister, using power, he organized the signing of contracts for the supply of gas with Russia unprofitable for Ukraine. Despite this, it was formally she who headed the list of the alliance of the united opposition, which was formed on the basis of the Batkivshchyna party.

In addition, it should be noted that this is not the first statement of Tymoshenko and election fraud. A little earlier, she stated the same in her message addressed to European politicians. In September, it was announced again by Tymoshenko’s daughter, Eugenia, at a meeting of the European Parliament. In this message, the politician urged the European Union to recognize the Ukrainian parliamentary elections as illegitimate.

Currently, the United States of America is discussing whether it is possible to carry out certain sanctions against those individuals who are involved in the arrest and conviction of Tymoshenko, in particular, the ban on entry into American territory. Note that these sanctions are provided for in the framework of the resolution of September 20 2012, which was approved by the Committee on the problems of international relations of the US Senate. This document calls on the Ukrainian government to take measures to free the “political prisoner” Yulia Tymoshenko.

Representatives of European countries, which sharply condemned the verdict of Tymoshenko, repeatedly called on the government of Ukraine to take measures to ensure that it was released. So, for example, at the beginning of this year, José Manuel Pinto Teixeira, head of the European Union’s representation in Ukraine, made a statement that the upcoming parliamentary elections would be recognized as legitimate only if opposition leaders directly participated in them, at the same time it was meant that the ex-premier should be released. But later, however, he added that no special conditions were put forward by the EU ...

Earlier, in 2011, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted a resolution regarding Ukraine, which urged the Ukrainian head of state to apply all legal methods and methods at his disposal to ensure the release of opposition leaders, as well as to enable these politicians to participate in upcoming parliamentary elections. election. If Yanukovych does not listen, then Ukraine was threatened with the introduction of international sanctions.

Then the representatives of European democracy said that the EU and US sanctions against Ukraine will directly depend on what election results will be presented at the end of October. As noted by Jose Manuel Barroso, the choice of the head of state to Ukraine, which took place in the 2010 year, was generally in line with European international standards. This was one of the prerequisites that the country could hope to strengthen democracy. At the same time, the situation that developed after, in the opinion of the Western politician, clearly indicates that the democratic norms in the country are not being observed, and Ukrainian justice is clearly distinguished by selectivity. And if at the very beginning representatives of the European Union doubted their attitude to what is happening in Ukraine, considering all events with opposition leaders only to be accidental, then at present they are already sure that the Ukrainian government does not strive to achieve European values ​​and norms.

Thus, to say that the sanctions against Ukraine will definitely be imposed, it is too early. But, as noted by Senator Richard Durbin, the author of the resolution on Ukraine, the United States of America and the European Union are closely watching how the situation will develop in Ukraine. He also expressed the hope that the problem of opposition leaders will be solved in the very near future.

However, it is necessary to note again that after the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, the Yushchenko-Tymoshenko team used similar methods of dealing with their political opponents, but then the West closed on such “childish pranks” of the new Ukrainian government.

Strangely enough, it seems that representatives of the Ukrainian government are absolutely confident in their abilities on the world stage and do not “heed” the insistent appeals of the West towards Tymoshenko. So, in particular, in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs they say that none of these resolutions, together with all the sanctions against Ukraine, can be taken seriously. In addition, a significant number of Ukrainians believe that the West, first of all, needs to deal with its internal problems, and not to go with its moral teachings to others.

Under Orangeism, raiding, nepotism, and the industrial admixture flourished in Ukraine. enterprises, reprisals against opponents ...

    What will change in Ukraine after the elections? It is worth looking at the lists of candidates for deputies, the same perennial feces changing (like chameleons) the color of party flags, supporting the fluctuations of parties alternately crawling into power by the "prostitute" method. The fact that power has been seized by an organized criminal group from the region, that the vertical of power and laws, including those on elections, are not built. That already there is falsification and rejection of unwanted candidates and members of electoral commissions from the lists, it becomes clear for whom the "green" corridor is being prepared. If we take into account that this party force launched and now modernized and improved the "fuck you" system (the author is a former trash (dog handler), a suspect, closely related to Kuchma, and in the present, a lawyer to all lawyers "in law"), the result is obvious. Vote, do not vote, in any case the bandits will remain in power. If Timoshchenko has an analytical mind, charisma, he can ignite the masses with his speeches, and with his cunning fool an opponent, and another frank bone-speaking ignoramus and boor. That doesn't make it easier for the people. Both are fighting for the sole power for themselves and their clan. The crappy principles of building a state for oneself do not exclude the appearance on the horizon of "defenders of democracy" as part of the AUG with a mattress pad on a flagpole. One calms down. DO WE NEED IT?

      That's right. Here Semenych probably sang about present Ukraine then:

      Like in a vague parish,

      Fell out well done
      All thorns and thorns.
      Ah, he scooped up grievances, scooped up
      Full handfuls
      Well, the grief that sipped
      It’s never worse.
      Drink poison, even pour it over!
      Fortunately, they don’t take money.
      How much rope weave -
      You’ll stick your whip anyway.
      Chases losers
      In the world with a cat,
      Life flows between the fingers
      Thin spider web.
      And which led led
      Those blown away by the winds
      Straight to the prison.
      Don’t hope for mercy here -
      Bite the bullet and endure!
      How much rope weave -
      All the same, you meddle in the whip!
      Oh, dashing side
      No matter how I scour you
      You are red frontal place
      Yes, a slimy rope ...
      And the Devil Satan himself hanged
      Goal heel licks.
      Oh, annoyance, mother is honest! -
      Neither live nor survive!
      You do not howl, do not cry, but laugh -
      They will not forgive tears now.
      How much rope weave -
      All the same, shorten!
      Thoughts are more dreary at night.
      Carpenters do not hesitate.
      Do not have time for the morning -
      It hurts too early.
      You do not regret it, do not regret it -
      Well, what do you need a delay?
      On your rope
      There is not a bundle.
      Better lie down and get warm -
      I supposedly will not oversleep ...
      No matter how much the rope
      And you poke your nose in the loop!

        I do not whine and do not complain, it seemed so to you. These are two.
        And three. If the rulers will not only think about their enrichment, I, in principle, do not mind that the rulers would be enriched, but let the people enrich first, and after themselves. Rich people themselves will introduce a successful state top manager to the rank of president for life.

            No, the problem is that the repairs were started in order to enrich the contractor at the expense of the tenants. And such repairs in such conditions can drag on for decades. And when do you live in a new apartment? Negligent contractors by the ears and to the trough. one year - "repair"? With the fact that the Soviet government left the new country working enterprises, a fleet, infrastructure. Without a civil war, without devastation. But now all of Europe should be envious.

            Of course not. The problem of the people is that they want to work, but no working conditions have been created. Rather, these conditions are created, but not everywhere and not always, in accordance with the current economic situation.
            I can throw a lot of examples, from this the essence will not change.

            That is why I believe that the current government (I do not share the power and the opposition with one another stand) could already take care of creating normal working conditions. Or a complete change of all who led Ukraine in the last 7-10 years.

              So everywhere and in all countries there are those who are dissatisfied. And most of those who are dissatisfied are hired people. They all have them. Where more, where less. And nothing will change. Until a particular person chooses a different path for himself.

      Julia openly calls on the West to intervene in the domestic politics of a sovereign state. It is a pity for the stray, believing this polit-swindler.

      The prosecutor's office is enlightening the so far lost American senators - "Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin in his letter, which he sent to the lower house of the US Congress - the Senate, on the tough resolution on Ukraine, adopted recently, accused Yulia Tymoshenko of killing four people, and compared the Ukrainian opposition with Al-Qaeda. According to Kuzmin, he appealed to the Senate because the situation with Tymoshenko "was misinterpreted by some American politicians." He also compared the investigation of Yulia Tymoshenko's criminal cases with the Al-Qaeda attack in the United States on September 11, 2001.
      “I can’t imagine, for example, that the US Senate can demand that the US stop investigating the murder of citizens on September 11, 2001, only because the prosecutor has established the involvement of an influential opposition politician in this heinous crime. I can’t imagine that the US Senate, for similar reasons, may demand that Sweden stop investigating the murder of Prime Minister Olof Palme. The Senate is clearly not stopping the search for al-Qaeda leaders. And therefore, I don’t understand why the Senate recommends that Ukraine stop the investigation into the killing of four people. ”He also reminded the American side of the Lazarenko case.
      “The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine only in 2011-2012 appealed more than 20 times to the Department of Justice and the US State Department for help in interrogating former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavel Lazarenko, who expressed his willingness to testify to Ukrainian investigators. However, we did not receive a response to any request. We are deprived of the opportunity to obtain important evidence of the killings in Ukraine ”

    In such cases, only 3 options

Yesterday, on several channels, the issue of Ukraine’s entry into the customs union was discussed, and in the context that there is no other choice (Europe does not expect, Turkey is out of control, but a NATO member), and you need to hurry - every day of delay - lost profit. So any dissatisfied screech of the West against the current government will only accelerate the process. And they won’t let Yulia go, if they weren’t Julia - these guys had suffered a lot from her in previous years, but they have a good memory. Yes ... the West is not in that form now to be afraid of it, so we’ll all be in the elections and choose the best of what is wink shorter for those who are not afraid drinks

    There is a parallel between Tymoshenko and Khodorkovsky. Both of them plucked power into their heads, not very reckoning with the laws. Of both, the West tried to make the banner of the struggle for democracy. After sitting, having set free, no one will be needed.

      The West wants to make AntiRussia out of Ukraine. Orange is a tool for the implementation of these plans. And without Tymoshenko, the orange front will fall apart. Therefore, the West so supports it, therefore, it should always be in the spotlight.

        There is (was) one more symbol (Yusch), he is simply out of work now and not in prison, but he was cunningly tricky.
