BYUT leader Yulia Tymoshenko aims to turn Batkivshchyna All-Ukrainian Union into a powerful European-type party.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, she said this at the news conference in Kharkiv.

According to her words, she makes trips over Ukraine to carry out “an extensive modernization” of the party. Yu. Tymoshenko believes that the public will see at the example of Batkivshchyna All-Ukrainian Union how a European party should look like and work.

The BYUT leader is satisfied that amid hard times for opposition such well-known people as ex-governor of the Kharkiv Oblast Arsen Avakov come to it.

When “rats run after cheese” true patriots come to Batkivshchyna All-Ukrainian Union, said Yu. Tymoshenko.
