Tymoshenko: There is no force that can break the opposition

The Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko and the Batkivshchyna party have declared their solidarity with Yuriy Lutsenko and are demanding that President Yanukovych release the opposition politician without delay.

According to Tymoshenko, there is no doubt whatsoever that the arrest of the former internal affairs minister is politically motivated. Last Friday, Yanukovych virtually admitted on three national television channels that the so-called law enforcement agencies coordinate their actions with him and that he is orchestrating the persecution of the opposition.

In opposition’s opinion, the government, which treats the people as nothing more than construction waste from the process of building “a new Ukraine” for Yanukovych and his family, wants to remove everyone who gets in the way of their sham reforms. Talk of ‘reform’ is aimed at covering up the many billions being stolen from the state by a clan that sees Ukraine as a country they defeated in war and now owes them reparations.

“According to Yanukovych, Lutsenko’s “guilt” is reinforced by the fact that in the struggle for Ukraine, the former minister stood side-by-side with Yulia Tymoshenko – the person Yanukovych views as the main obstacle in his experiment with Ukraine.

In the ten months since he came to power, Yanukovych has enriched himself and his criminal and oligarchic associates. He’s gone so far as to essentially privatize the National Bank. But despite his absolute power, Yanukovych has demonstrated his complete inability to run the country in the interest of the ordinary people and unwillingness to address their problems,” the official website of Yulia Tymoshenko cited the opinion of the opposition and its leader.

Batkivshchtna party claims Yanukovych won’t succeed in scaring the opposition. “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. There is no force that can break the opposition. We recognize our duty to defend Ukraine and its people.”
