Tymoshenko organizing popular resistance movement
Ukrainian presidential candidate and leader of the Batkivschyna party Yulia Tymoshenko is organizing a popular resistance movement which she is ready to lead.
"I have decided right now to do all I can to support the popular resistance movement which must be broadened by recruiting volunteers who want to defend Ukraine" Tymoshenko said on the Svoboda Slova (Freedom of Speech) program on ICTV television on Monday evening.
She said this movement must be comprised of military people with fighting experience, ex-special police force officers and people well versed in strategies of military doctrines.
The headquarters have been set up and will gather for a meeting on Tuesday "to plan each step we will make," Tymoshenko said.
"I am urging all who are ready to defend Ukraine to sign up. The organizing center will be accommodated at the headquarters at first and then we will move to the east and work according to plans that the headquarters will propose," Tymoshenko said.
