You're reading: Tymoshenko asks MEPs to declare Rada election undemocratic, illegitimate

Brussels - Former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko has called on European politicians to declare the Ukrainian parliamentary election campaign as one that is not up to the European democratic standards and those of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). 

The message was voiced before the European Parliament by Tymoshenko’s daughter Yevhenia, who is currently in Brussels to meet with leaders of the largest political groups in this European institution.

“The main message is to declare now that this election is illegitimate. Doing so after the election will be late. Already one can acknowledge the fact that democratic forces will be unable to defeat falsifications going on at every level. She hopes that observers who will be present before the election begins will manage to notice that and conclude before the election that it is unfair and dishonest. Dictatorship in Ukraine has effectively been installed, and this election will help consolidate it,” Tymoshenko’s daughter told Interfax-Ukraine after her first meeting with group leaders from the European People’s Party.

Tymoshenko believes that what is happening in Ukraine during the election campaign “has nothing to do with honest and fair election standards,” Batkivschyna Party deputy leader Hryhoriy Nemyria said.
