The Ukrainian authorities are actively trying to discredit the Tymoshenko family by creating bogus accounts on social networks using their names. 

“I ask that journalists not spread the lies that are appearing on fake social network accounts. I officially state that I do not have an account on Twitter, Facebook, Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte or any other social network,” said Eugenia Tymoshenko.

The ex-premier’s daughter said her representatives have written to the social networks asking them to close the fake accounts.

“Everyone realized long ago that Yanukovych’s regime is only capable of fabricating cases and committing provocations,” she said.
