As President, Yulia Tymoshenko will not use state dachas

yulia.jpgPrime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has stated that following her victory in the presidential elections, she does not intend to move into the state dacha.

"I as Prime Minister haven’t moved into a single state dacha. Neither I, nor my family, or close ones has (in their ownership) a state dacha or piece of land. They won’t. I want to differ from the locust - bureaucratic, official - that takes everything it can get its hands on," Yulia Tymoshenko said while appearing on the Chornomorsky television and radio company.

In late December, the Prime Minister stated that she has never used a state dacha, and is renting a house with her husband Oleksandr. According to her, journalists are free to see this house and meet the owners of the house her family rented earlier.

Yulia Tymoshenko underscored that her family owns only one house in Dnipropetrovsk, where her mother, aunt and cousin’s family live. She also denied information that her family allegedly owns five houses. "There are no five houses, and the pictures released by the media are not of my house, but the neighbor’s house, and they are quite different in size," she noted.
