The subject of national revival never will be a subject number one for Tymoshenko and Yanukovych. It was declared by the President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, speaking today at the Forum of the Ukrainian nationalists.
"Three years lie in the Verkhovna Rada idea of recognition of participants of the Ukrainian liberation movement. Recognition of that these people fought for Ukraine. Not their equating with soldiers of the Great Patriotic War …" - V. Yushchenko told.
The president noted that "at us this decision in any way doesn't pass". "But if in the Ukrainian parliament 152 mandates belong to Tymoshenko, unless will pass this decision? Never. And if 170 mandates belong to Yanukovych …" - he added.
The president emphasized that "Tymoshenko and Yanukovych - they make a pair". According to him, the respect for democracy won't be a basis of their values, and eurointegration never becomes their purpose.
V. Yushchenko added that his decision on rank assignment "the Hero of Ukraine" to Roman Shukhevich meant that "the Ukrainian nation has to re-read history of liberation movement of Ukraine".
