Tymoshenko will not protest presidential election outcome

"If the people elect their President, and this is not Yulia Tymoshenko, I will take this choice easy, for sure," the Prime Minister of Ukraine said on TV in Poltava, Ukrainian radio reported. "We will not challenge any election returns to avoid tremors, which may bring about instability in this country," she assured. Tymoshenko confirmed once again that her key rival in the presidential race is Party of Regions' leader Viktor Yanukovych. Presidential elections in Ukraine are scheduled for January 17, 2010. This election will be Ukraine's fifth presidential election since declaring independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
Nobody in Ukraine believes that this election will take place without shady fighting using all possible methods to obtain power. Not long ago Tymoshenko started using election posters saying: “They loot Ukraine. She works”, “They promise. She works”, “They are talking. She works” pointed against Viktor Yanukovych and his Party of Regions. In response to such fierce attack, Party of Regions has hunged up following posters: “Ukraine is getting poor. She works”, “Ukraine is starving. She works”, “Euro-2012 is under the threat of frustration. She works”. suddenly Yulia Tymoshenko decided to change the meaning of the word “She” that caused following video available now on YouTube. You may watch it at

PM Yulia Tymoshenko (voiceover): Every day, I work till late night because I know that my every minute is for the sake of the people, for the sake of my native Ukraine. I know that millions of people work a lot every day as well because they know that today their work is needed like never before. Every minute, our country smelts ore, sows bread, heals the sick, creates art, teaches and brings up kids. It is she, our best country. She works. She is Ukraine!
