In the morning a video with congratulations went viral on social networks.
"Yulia Tymoshenbko has always believed this day to be a family holiday. Each November 27 she spent it with her family in Dnipropetrovsk. Handfuls of her favorite white roses from her comrades in the party office in Kyiv came later.
But today's birthday of Batkivschyna leader is different. Viktor Yanukovych and his loyal minions have done everything to ensure that this important holiday is turned into hell for Yulia Tymoshenko.
She, imprisoned for political reasons in Kachanovskaya colony is not hugged by her mother, not congratulated by her beloved husband who became a political refugee, and her daughter will be able to come only in the formal status of "a defense attorney of the former prime minister."
Today is the birthday of Yulia Tymoshenko, and we want to wish her courage, fortitude and freedom," states the message from her associates.
"She remains a fighter, even in a prison cell. Her colleagues know it as well as her enemies.
Her sharp words, her principles are unchanged, her desire to fight for justice envokes admiration. Tymoshenko cannot be broken or intimidated - everyone knows that and that is why they are afraid.
She is so fragile and exhausted physically but strong in spirit despite the trials and tribulations. She remains a true patriot of Ukraine, and even in a tiny prison cell thinking about the motherland and its future.
In short letters written in pencil from the imprisonment she always calls not to give up, to fight and win - for truth, honor, everything that is human and truly valuable in life.
It inspires us and gives us faith.
Happy Birthday, Yulia Volodymyrivna!
We wish that your next birthday you will celebrate the way it feels like a holiday with your family and friends. And let your friends have the opportunity to present you with the most beautiful bouquet of white roses.
