Yulia Tymoshenko: I don’t want the Orange Revolution to be judged

pr_a4113a.jpgBatkivshchyna Party leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has refused to cross-examine former President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko, who today testified in her trial as a witness for the prosecution.

"I will explain to the court. I don’t want to ask the witness questions because I don’t want the Orange Revolution to be judged in this court, I don’t want there to be squabbles about the relationship between the president and prime minister. Let everything Viktor Andriyovych [Yushchenko] said remain on his conscience. I won’t ask questions because I don’t want to please the Presidential Administration," Yulia Tymoshenko said today in court.

Her statement was met by applause from the courtroom audience.

The court is now questioning President Yushchenko’s former international energy advisor Bohdan Sokolovsky.
