Eugenia Tymoshenko gave the interview for Krzysztof Nechypor.

At first, Mr. Nechypor asked her (as he said) a provocative question if Eugenia believes that Poland is the advocate of Ukraine in Europe and isn’t good  advocate of Yulia Tymoshenko at the same time?

Yulia Tymoshenko’s daughter told: “I believe that the support of Poland always was very necessary for us and it came at the right time. Today we need the support of the Polish elite and Polish political leaders more than ever before. That’s why I would like to thank former President Aleksander Kwasniewski. He takes part in the mission of the European Parliament, fighting for the freedom of Yulia Tymoshenko and Yuriy Lutsenko. Ex-President of the EP Pat Cox and Alexander Kwasniewski are doing everything possible to enable the prisoners were released and rehabilitated politically.” She also added about last discussion about conditions by which European politicians try push to have signed an association agreement: “The position of my mother and the whole of the United Opposition remains unchanged. This agreement must be signed. My mother in 2008, when she was prime minister, has taken the first steps to sign an association agreement for free trade zone. I think that the discussion of this topic should be continued, and as a result the agreement will be signed. Of course, we all know that there are political obstacles. I would like to quote my mother, who said that it is very easy to work together to put up flags of the European Union at the main square of Kiyv, but it will not lead to destroying of the current dictatorship in Ukraine”

The second question was about the political activity of Eugenia.

But she denied any political ambition. She said that she cares to show her mother’s position in the ukrainian democratic forces. As a sitizen of Ukraine Eugenia understands her mother’s release, reabilitation and political activity will help to normalize ukrainian democracy.

At least Krzysztof Nechypor asked about fighting.

Eugenia told that situation is difficult and the ukrainian authorities  themselves blame if the possible sanctions will be applied to them. She also noticed that her own efforts can be more effective: “I think that it is necessary to use all the opportunities in Ukraine. People must unify to protest against the government’s actions and seek the release of my mother, Yuri Lutsenko and other prisoners.”
