From Behind Bars Former Ukrainian PM Warns Ukraine Losing Freedom

Former prime minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko has addressed parliaments and leaders of democratic countries and Ukrainians all over the world to resist ‘dictatorship’ of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

“I am appealing to you from behind prison bars, where Ukraine’s president, Viktor Yanukovych, has put me and other leaders of the political opposition to his rule. He imprisoned me on totalitarian-style trumped up charges in order to deprive the opposition of a leadership voice, bury democracy and make his power eternal,” reads an address of Tymoshenko posted on the official Web site of the former premier.
