Ukraine on
track for a Sovjetization

Yulia Tymoshenko, former Ukrainian
Prime Minister, and
now leader of the
Ukrainian opposition, was seized
last week and arrested in the
midst of the ongoing judicial
negotiation. The judge stated that she has shown contempt for the court and
a ”systematic” disrupting
of order in the courtroom.

Yulia Tymoshenko, accused Prime Minister in 2009 for having signed a gas
contract with Russia, is said
to have caused losses for the Ukrainian
State in the order of $ 440 million.

In align with the arrest the judge gave Yulia Tymoshenko a
warning for her commentary:
”I’m not going to stand up for you
because it would be like kneeling to
the Mafia. What you are trying to do is not
to crush me, but to crush Ukraine’s young democracy. ”

Ever since the pro Russian Viktor
Yanukovich won the presidential
election in 2010, several of Yulia Tymoshenko´s former ministers have been
investigated by the police. The former minister of internal affairs
is now in prison, and the finance minister, hunted by the authorities had to flee the country and received
political asylum in the Czech Republic.
Yulia Tymoshenko herself is not allowed to travel out
of the country or even leave
Kyiv for as long as the proceedings are in progress.

Leonid Kravchuk, Ukraine’s
first president following their
independence, said to the online magazine Ukrainian Pravda that the
arrest of Yulia Tymoshenko
is an ”unfounded, politically motivated decision that has caused significant damage to the state of Ukraine.”

Wilfried Martens, President of
the European People’s Party (EPP)
says in a comment that the reason for the arrest is that those in power want
to ”eliminate the
main obstacle to a return to an authoritarian rule a la the Soviet Union”. ”Quote: Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation

Comment on the article: I don´t think that
Yulia Tymoshenko has any intentions to leave Ukraine, but by the authorities
saying so, she comes off looking like a simple criminal. And by saying out loud
that Yulia is not allowed to travel outside of Kyiv, in particular, which in
reality is a prohibition for Yulia to travel all in all, she can be held
responsible as a criminal and by that the authorities are saying that leaving
Kyiv is equal with leaving Ukraine during the judicial process. If she does it,
it is good because she can be jailed, and if she doesn´t she is obliged to the
court and therefore is justifying it to the Ukrainian people, plus it is one
step closer to imprisoning her for real. It gets so much easier for the
authorities to ultimately jail her then. It is not so easy to imprison a great
stateswoman as Yulia Tymoshenko! She is fighting fiercely for herself and for
her country, and as long as she has outspoken followers in Ukraine and abroad,
she has a chance. The only way Viktor Janukovich is going to be able to quiet a
sentence of guilt and jailing of Yulia Tymoshenko, is by taking the country to
totalitarianism. So in other words; Yulias destiny is Ukraines destiny! Please
spread the word about this Facebook group, especially you Ukrainians!
