Oleksandr Tymoshenko, husband of imprisoned former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, is launching a Europe-wide campaign calling for her release, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"Bohdan Danylyshyn, the former minister of economy in Yulia Tymoshenko’s government who was also given political asylum by the Czech Republic, will be helping him. The imprisoned ex-premier’s daughter, Yevgenia, will head the campaign," reports Polskie Radio.

Oleksandr Tymoshenko, Yevgenia Tymoshenko and Bohdan Danylyshyn plan to work with various organizations in the Czech Republic and Europe. "They want not only to force the Ukrainian government to free Yulia Tymoshenko, but also to activate the opposition against Viktor Yanukovych," report the Polish journalists.

In December 2011, Oleksandr Tymoshenko submitted documents to register the "Batkivshchyna" NGO in Prague.
