Tymoshenko denies seeking deputy immunity from prosecution

Eponymous bloc leader Yulia Tymoshenko denies her seeking a mandate of a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada to obtain immunity from prosecution. Tymoshenko said this at a press conference in Ivano-Frankivsk.

"Frankly speaking, the status ofpeople's deputydoes not interest me much today. And I don't need any immunity because I never used it. I just do my work wherever I am - the parliament, the government, the opposition - with the status or without it," said Tymoshenko.

Yulia Tymoshenko said she wants early elections to the Verkhovna Rada very much to see there a majority of deputies who are true patriots.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, deputies from the faction of the Party of Regions have said more than once that the leader of the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko seeks early elections to the Verkhovna Rada to obtain a deputy mandate.

In January 2010, then presidential candidate and prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko professed cancellation of the deputy immunity from prosecution.

Tymuchenko should also collect signatures of deputies, who want to have her arrested and charged for enbezzelment.

Ivano Frankovsky and its districts such as Khalush, are the Center and the base for the Canadian Busness Assisstance Board, an extended arm of the CIA.

They, this supposedly business Agencies from Canada, are allways located in City Councl Buldings, where they carry out espionage activities.

Their offices in Western Ukraine are allways located at or near Police Stations or in the Building of City Council or Regional Government where they can steal data and carry out electronic espionage and organizing discontentent, and bribing officers in power.

Julia came here to discuss what to do next, as there is a seemngly sbotage activity going on in this secret police/spy service of Canada?Usa, as their head office is wishing to scale down operations, but some neocon lower officials want to keep the fire burning, want to keep pressing Ukraine and ferment an aarchy there...

Russia and USA are currently thawing a bit, as the USA is trying to get out of Bushes war for oil.

Soon the USA is strong again, they will be back at Russia's door, to attack it via revolutions, media originated turmoil formenting..

So Julia feels she will be needed sooon, and she wants to stay relevant even now, in aiding Canadian USA spy networks in Ukraine, to insure her own survival...and ability to reap off this naive but very kind people of Ukraine,,,,

Tymo seeking to avoid justice? One must be a very bad person to even think she might have such intentions.

With this authoritarian and illegal coalition, Yulia needs immunity from harassment by this corrupt govt. Plus, as leader of the 2nd largest party in the VR, she belongs there.
