 Tymoshenko: Arrange Individual Kruty Against This Mafia Regime

Yulia Tymoshenko appealed to the citizens of Ukraine on the Day of Commemorating the Heroes of Kruty.

In her appeal Yulia Tymoshenko notes that 95 years ago, several hundred of young defenders of Ukrainian People's Republic selflessly tried to stop the "army of the Bolshevik invaders that came to Kiev," and now "the descendants of those Bolsheviks, a little modernized and recolored - are again marching on the capital and all our state."

"Like domestic occupants they destroy political opponents, activists, tighten freedoms, stop the European course of Ukraine. The state machine is working for one reason - to provide its life term rule," she writes.

"We are witnessing a blind desire of one dictator destroying the dream and the cause of numerous generations, killing the hope of millions to live in a normal European Ukraine, turning Ukraine from underdeveloped country into a backward feudal state," said Tymoshenko.

In her opinion, "the events of 1918 and 2013 are similar to each other in the way that before us again is the issue of preservation of Ukrainian independence, the future of our children and our grandchildren and our place among the civilized nations."

"You cannot be tamed, and convince that black is white, that false is true, that corruption in the government - is economic stability and the lack of basic freedoms and rights is the preservation of law and order," said the ex-Prime Minister.

According to Tymoshenko, "patriotic Ukrainians with European beliefs make for the worst fear of the regime" and "the regime is afraid of even single person actions but to fundamentally change the situation in the country it is not enough."

"On the Day of Kruty Heroes I urge the society to wake up! Personal neutrality to what happens in the country is a vote for the establishment of a dictatorship, it is a lost opportunity for the European future, at least for our children and grandchildren," she writes.

"Leo Tolstoy once said that there are more good people but evil wins because evil is better organized. I appeal to you - organize, act together. Build in Kyiv, in towns and villages your own small and large, collective and individual Kruty against the mafia regime," calls Tymoshenko.

In her opinion, "only when the example of hundreds is followed by thousands and hundreds of thousands of brave fighters, when Ukraine boils on numerous fires of resistance to injustice, only then we will break a vicious cycle of history" and achieve the right to a truly free European country.
