Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko loves and respects her son-in-law very much.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yu. Tymoshenko said this during the direct telephone line with readers of “Komsomolska Pravda in Ukraine” newspaper.

Answering a question whether her son-in-law speaks  the Ukrainian language, Yu. Tymoshenko said: “My son-in-law has just started singing Ukrainian songs. He has a song about miners; it was his debut to song in Ukrainian. He did it rather well and that is why  all our family agitate him not only to sing in Ukrainian, but also speak Ukrainian”. At the same time, according to her words, her son-in-law uses such Ukrainian language words as “dyakuyu” (thank you), “dobryi den” (good afternoon) and other simple words. “So he is a real Ukrainian son-in-law”, she added smiling.

Yu. Tymoshenko also said that when her son-in-law calls her he starts talking with words: “Mum, good afternoon, it’s you son”. “It is pleasant to me, because he speaks so softly with a little ascent. I love him very much and respect him as a personality, because his has the great heart of  a real man”, noted the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
