Batkivshchyna Party Leader Yulia Tymoshenko believes that the task of all responsible state figures of Ukraine is to make every possible effort, regardless of the results of the presidential election, to build a strong, successful and European Ukraine. The Batkivshchyna team is ready to be part of this work through the proposed provisions of the New Course for Ukraine.

“I believe that the task of all responsible public figures in Ukraine, regardless of who wins the presidential election, is to roll up our sleeves and start working responsibly for Ukraine to become a European, successful and beautiful state,” Yulia Tymoshenko said during the XII Kyiv Security Forum.

The politician reminded that on the initiative of Batkivshchyna, a team of specialists from all leading sectors in the country developed the “New Course for Ukraine,” which involves the implementation of a number of changes and transformations in the country’s life.The corresponding document became “a strategy developed specifically for Ukraine.”

“And if we are responsible politicians, then we must take the best and most realistic parts of the presidential candidates’ programs and make Ukraine finally happy. I see this as our team’s calling,” said the Head of the Batkivshchyna Party.

According to the parliamentarian, no matter who is elected president it is also important that “the current status quo of the country’s management” does not remain. That is why the Batkivshchyna team is ready to unite around rebuilding Ukraine’s system of governance.

“We can not allow the deeply corrupt system of governance of the country to remain, while the people are outsiders in the life of their own country. And we can not leave the double standards in our lives,” Yulia Tymoshenko said, adding: “That is why our team will be with those who really serve the country, and not just facades and PR campaigns during the electoral race. And we will be with those who are not ready to adhere to double standards, who see Ukraine in the EU and NATO. And we will be with those who are sincerely ready to unite after the election and build completely new institutions, a new country, and new rules of life.”
