BYuT will not attend inauguration ceremony

dsc_2081.jpgPeople’s Deputy Serhiy Mishchenko (BYuT) has announced that the Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc will not attend Viktor Yanukovych’s swearing-in ceremony.

"We will not attend the inauguration. This is not our holiday and we were not invited. Yanukovych is sending invitations to individuals and political forces. We have not received invitations," Serhiy Mishchenko told journalists today in the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine.

He also underscored that Yulia Tymoshenko’s withdrawal of her lawsuit against the Central Election Commission shouldn’t be viewed as a sign of weakness. "Yulia Tymoshenko didn’t give up. This is only the beginning. She simply showed that she doesn’t want to be part of this farce," he added.

Today Yulia Tymoshenko withdrew her lawsuit after the Higher Administrative Court refused to grant her key petitions for a recount at certain polling stations in the Crimea and information about the State Voter Registry, which included duplicates and names of the deceased.

Yulia Tymoshenko has left the premises of the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine.
