Which truth is hidden behind the hunger strike of Julia Tymoshenko?
 
Circus around imprisoned Julia Tymoshenko, former Ukrainian Prime Minister, against whom Russia once issued a warrant, reminds the circus around supposed attempt on life of Viktor Juščenko, former Ukrainian president. It seems that lying and lobbying in western political scene and so called „independent“, but, in reality manipulating media, win again.
And thanks to the very effective help of some politicians in western and central Europe, Brusel and overseas, who more rely on some media information than on verified information of intelligence service. Whom and what can we believe, when an informational chaos dominates and almost nobody knows what the truth is or is not? For example, Americans are in such an information schizophrenia, that they do not only pay tax money to CIA but they use them for another 15 intelligence agencies too...
For Julia Tymoshenko, the gas princess, eleven presidents announced that they would not participate the informal summit of leaders of central and eastern Europe on May 10-11 2012 in Ukrainian Yalta. The participation was called off of presidents from Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Romania, Slovenia and Italy. The reason is „bad, inhuman treatment of the imprisoned Tymoshenko, violation of her human rights and principles of a legal state....“ What is more, some „european political comedians“ want to boycott the football championship EURO 2012 in Ukraine because of this.  
Actual play of the „moral and rightful“ against the surprised Ukrainian president Viktor Janukovyč reminds a similar play against him, when he won against Viktor Juščenko in presidential elections. In novembre 2004 tandem Juščenko and Tymoshenko, a product of so called democratic powers intentively supported by „the moral and democratic West“, staged a play called „The Orange revolution“. And they blamed Viktor Janukovyč for manipulation and falsification of presidential election, and even for the attempt on life of Viktor Juščenko. Manipulated crowds in Kyjev and more manipulated politicians in the European Parliament (quickly outfitted by orange scarfs) believed that Mr. Juščenko was poisoned by „russian poison and dioximes“ on Janukovyč’s command. Only later when a fact, that pro-Western Juščenko was secretly „cured“ by embryonic stem-cells of the unborn babies in Austria and that the treatment was unsuccessful, came to light, the craze for revolution began to regress. But not in media. And this deceit helped leaders of revolution to take over the power after repeated elections. What is worse, the public in Europe still has not known the truth about this „attempt on life“ even though we were promised. The European Parliament (especially Polish politicians) later urged pro-Western Kyjev to show results from the „independent comission of inquiry named by president“, but unfortunately, neither this institution succeeded to force the president Juščenko and the Prime Minister Tymoshenko to reveal the truth.
It was mainly unsuccessful results of their co-governance, later their political breaking-up, imminent collapse of Ukrainian economy, and more intensive critique from Brusel towards Ukraine owing to which Viktor Janukovyč came back to the presidential seat in 2010. He won the elections that were marked as regular and fair by independent international observers. Just Julia Tymoshenko rejected to acknowledge the results of elections. First she made a media and political performance about threatened statal independence and democracy in Ukraine. After couple of days she theatrically withdrew her complaint against election results and sustained that the court was not proceeding rightfully. The West and Brusel did not support and comment her behaviour. And media, instead of reflecting Tymoshenko, they were writing about how new „Russian vassal Janukovyč“ will orientate Ukraine towards Russia and against the West. And they began to make Tymoshenko martyr of opposition and victim of the new president.
When she was sentenced to 7 years in prison for abuse of office, her bad state of health began to be publicized in media as well as political revenge of V. Janukovyč.
In January 2012 they wrote, that (reportedly) she lost her conscience for 2 hours when she took the medicine against ice cold from employees of Kharkov prison. German diplomats and doctors of Berlin did not observed any bad treatment, torture or other abuse of the sentenced, neither after their third visit there. On the contrary, they admired the medical care towards Tymoshenko who surprisingly denied long-term hospitalization in Kharkov Railway Hospital. Karl Max Einhäupl, director of the Clinic Charité in Berlin stated, that „ukrainian office makes a great effort for the treatment of Tymoshenko. We were in a hospital that has great personal and technical possibilities. It corresponds to standards.“
Then there came up a video, secretly recorded, with her proving that she lies and she feels good.
But instead of analysing her statements we are just witnessing a histrionic hunger strike, which began on April 20th 2012 and which again started the pressure of the West and Washington towards Kyjev, to set her free from prison...
Her husband Oleksander managed to emigrate in the end of 2011 to Czech Republic, where he has been running his business since 2009. It is pretended he had to elope from „enormous pressure of persecution from the part of Viktor Janukovič“ and that is why he asked for political asylum in Czech republic. In couple of days he got it. A year before him the former Ukrainian Minister of the economy Bohdan Danylyšin, close friend of Julia Tymoshenko, emigrated as well. Czech police arrested him on demand of Ukraine, where he is accused of manipulating public procurement. After a few weeks in detention pending trial he got the political asylum. Ukraine reacted by the quick exile of the Czech military attaché and his delegate from the embassy in Kyjev for supposed spying. Reciprocally two Ukrainian diplomats from Prague had to go... Since then there are strained relations between Czech Republic and Ukraine.
It is being speculated if there O. Tymoshenko and B. Danylyšin did not hide or laundered money which Julia embezzled or recieved from her sponsors. Tymoshenko’s couple once was accused of theft and tax evasion in 2000, when they were building up their business with delivery of energy raw material, in particular gas.
What and how much does Julia know, if her „treatment“ out of the country is offered by Russian as well as by western countries? Or what is inside the prosecution file and what can not be unveiled in another trial (for tax evasion and financial machinations) if it is possible to get Tymoshenko out of Ukraine? Some western politicians, Brusel and Americans require release of J. Tymoshenko. Surprisingly, they do not demant a new rightful trial, just her release, what means, that she has not committed any criminal act in their opinion. Very strange logic, which deny legitimacy and independence of justice.
President Janukovyč has already begun to waver for the pressure of Brusel which points out the possible freeze of Association Agreement between Ukraine and EU if Tymoshenko is not released (state extortion). Janukovyč admitted that the current Ukrainian laws sometimes „do not correspond to European standards“. Particularly he pointed out the act 356 (abuse of office or position) of the Criminal Code, „which is in many countries classified into the category of administrative offence“. However, in Ukraine there is still valid this more rigorous modification from 1962. President perhaps did not have an idea how proper was this statement. The west and member countries of the EU which have been fighting against corruption in highest governmental positions for a long time and unsuccessfully, want Ukraine to change or loosen legislation which would consider abuse of office according to „indulgent rules“. But aren’t „soft European standards“ in this area a tool for absolute power of politician, helplessness of citizens and a reason for crisis which overran Europe and Slovakia in it?
Ukrainian general prosecutor Viktor Pšonka does not agree with the proposal of president, and said, that it is senseless purposedly „decriminalize“ abuse of power just for Julia Tymoshenko...
Consequently, let us carefully follow the next progress of Tymoshenko’s play. If the truth comes out on light and people will know what is hidden behind the fact that Ukraine pays for Russian gas more than German, maybe this will cause shock for Brusel and people from countries boycotting Ukraine. Revealing the truth will maybe help our people in Slovakia too. At least in questioning more publicly questions about when politicians and public employees will have criminal responsibility for abusing their office, for political decision, voting in parliament, privatization, utilizing eurofunds and public sources, selling off state assets for low prices or disfunctioning information system of tax administration, as for example Ivan Mikloš, former Minister of Finance, his counsellors and friends managed to do.
