Presidential candidate Sergey Tigipko has said he supports the legalization of prostitution in Ukraine. "I would support this. Actually we should not be hypocrites. If certain things exist we should speak about them openly and resolve [problems] if necessary," he said during an Internet chat on the Korrespondent Web site on Nov. 27.

"Today we say that we have free medicine, although everybody pays for its, we say that we have free education, although everybody pays for it. That's why we should be honest with ourselves and it will be easier to live," Tigipko said.
