Certainly, if she at all agrees to consider such a step, there will be certain talks between her and Petro Poroshenko,” head of Poroshenko’s election headquarters Vitaliy Kovalchuk said at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine on April 9.

“Yulia Tymoshenko should demonstrate her responsibility before the Ukrainian people, and in fact give Petro Poroshenko the opportunity to win in the first round, as he is a candidate who has the best chance to win the election in the first round,” he added.
