You're reading: Tymoshenko calls on EU to sign Association Agreement with Ukraine
on social media

"I feel that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his team have started using this illegal court process against me and against other opposition political parties not only to eliminate the oppositions but also to attack the process of signing the agreements on political association and a free trade area with the EU," Tymoshenko said during a briefing outside Pechersky District Court of Kyiv.

"I am asking you not to tie, under any circumstances, the current opposition to political repressions in Ukraine, opposition to illegal criminal and legal persecutions of the opposition with the signing of the Association Agreement and a free trade agreement. This is today’s goal of President Yanukovych," she read out her letter to the EU leaders.

This is precisely why the current authorities continue the illegal processes against opposition activists – to prompt the relevant reaction from the global democratic community, including the EU, Tymoshenko said.
