You're reading: Yevhenia Tymoshenko: Myanmar opposition leader says situation in Ukraine similar to events in her country
on social media

Yevhenia Tymoshenko, the daughter of former Ukrainian Prime Minister
Yulia Tymoshenko, announced this during her visit to Prague, where she
met with a number of European politicians, as well as the Myanmar
opposition leader.

“It was a great honor for me to meet with Mrs. Aung San Suu Kyi. At
the beginning of a conversation, she immediately asked me how my mother
feels. Mrs. Aung San Suu Kyi thinks that the processes taking place in
Ukraine are very similar to the repression that was conducted in Myanmar
against her for 20 years. She understands my mother’s situation, and
gives her words of solidarity, support and wishes to be strong and that
she will support my mother in future,” Tymoshenko said in an interview
with Radio Liberty, which was published on Tuesday.

She also said that she spoke with Head of the Ukrainian European
Perspective, former Ukrainian Economy Minister Bohdan Danylyshyn, who
received political asylum in the Czech Republic.
