Oleksandr Tymoshenko is urging European countries to impose sanctions against members of the criminal Ukrainian regime, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

“I am urging European countries to impose sanctions against the authorities in Kyiv and on their families, in particular the sons of Yanukovych, the top authorities in the Prosecutor-General`s Office, the SBU security services, and the judges and investigators who facilitated the falsification of Yulia Tymoshenko`s case. World leaders have to finally understand that Yanukovych and democracy are mutually exclusive notions," Oleksandr Tymoshenko said in an interview with RFE/RL.

"The world needs to understand that the Yanukovych regime does not need Yulia Tymoshenko alive. I ask the leader of all countries of the world to protect my wife from physical destruction by the Yanukovych regime. In January 2009 Yulia Tymoshenko saved all of Europe from a cold winter, and now she needs to be saved,” he said.

Oleksandr Tymoshenko expressed hope that truth will prevail and Yulia Tymoshenko will soon be released. “She will come out victorious and the president of Ukraine. Our job is to help her in any way possible,” he said.
