KIEV, May 06, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is now running for Ukrainian president, has said that she was the only politician in Ukraine capable of conducting political reforms the country badly needs.
Speaking at a news conference in Nikolayev, Timoshenko put it quite straight: if the country elects other candidate, there will be no avoiding a “third round of revolution.”
“I do not want to bear responsibility for the failure of the revolution any longer,” she said. “But if the country elects other president, and, as a matter of fact, I have only one rival now, I think we will have to venture the third round of revolution. Because otherwise I don’t see any chance for changes. I simply know all these people.”
She also told about her bill that she claimed would help solve the problem of corruption but admitted that “many representatives of the oligarchic authorities,” including her chief rival at the presidential elections - Petr Poroshenko, “are not interested in it.”
According to latest public opinion polls, Poroshenko is supported by 33.3% of respondents, while Timoshenko may count on the voices of ten percent of the polled.
Early presidential elections in Ukraine are scheduled for May 25.
