‘I am sure Ukraine will join the EU’: Former PM Yulia Tymoshenko is freed hours after parliament ousts President Viktor Yanukovych
The former Prime Minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko, has been freed from prison and said that she is certain that the country will now join the EU, just hours after MPs voted to oust President Viktor Yanukovych.
“Our homeland will from today on be able to see the sun and sky as a dictatorship has ended,” Tymoshenko told reporters after her release from the hospital where she had been held under prison guard for most of the time since she was jailed in 2011.
Tymoshenko, who was on her way to Kiev to join the protesters in Independence Square, said she will “make it so that no drop of blood that was spilled will be forgotten.”
