The Batkivshchyna Party and its leader, Yulia Tymoshenko, are urging Yuriy Lutsenko to end his hunger strike, according to Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"I, better than anyone, understand the reasons that forced Yuriy Lutsenko to resort to radical actions – to go on a hunger strike in protest of the total lawlessness and political repressions," Yulia Tymoshenko said in a statement.

"However, it’s very important that you, Yuriy, understand: the immorality of the government isn’t worth human life, especially yours – our friend, colleague and political leader. Think about your family," she said.

Yuriy Lutsenko has been on a hunger strike for 26 days and there is serious concern about the state of his health.

The Batkivshchyna Party is urging the government to end the unjustified persecution of Yuriy Lutsenko and close the politically motivated case against him.
