Yulia Tymoshenko

In honor of Yulia Tymoshenko, we will leave this post on the front page for an entire month unless Ms. Tymoshenko is released from jail before then or there is something else that is particularly urgent to relate on Commoner.  In the meantime, we'll be posting about Mark's Director of Election campaign on Election Administration News (Politico) [just click on the blog name].  Notice of postings on our other blogs will either be listed there or through an update in this space, further below.

Yulia Tymoshenko needs our moral support, as she was thrown in jail by her political persecutors some weeks ago, and faces 7 years in prison from a trial based on ridiculous charges regarding arcane finance decisions that she obviously had the authority to make during one of her two tenures as Prime Minister of Ukraine. Please, write letters to the editor insisting that the State Department keep a close watch on this kangaroo trial, and to recall our ambassador in Kiev, in protest, if Tymoshenko is sentenced harshly or if her political rights are revoked. This looks all too similar to the former Egyptian president/dictator, Mubarak, throwing his presidential opponent in jail after the election. Yulia Tymoshenko is one of the most tenacious and best politicians in the world, and unlike a lot of American politicians, has the courage to protest sham elections. We have written several essays about Yulia on this blog and "Common Denominator." For this blog, just write "Yulia" or "Tymoshenko" in the search engine section to see these essays, and the same for Common Denominator.
