Prime Minister and presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko has said that today in the Higher Administrative Court she will defend the interests of a democratic Ukraine.

"I came today not to defend the presidential election – I came to defend Ukraine. I don’t want the future of my country and my people to be build on fraud and deception, as was the case in the second round of the presidential election in 2005," Yulia Tymoshenko said before the start of the hearing in the Higher Administrative Court on her appeal of the election results.

Yulia Tymoshenko stressed that she always believed in justice, honestly and the rule of law. "Today I will fight for Ukraine, proving my position in a legal way. I believe that the rule of law, the right to justice in such an important historical moment for a country is democracy and the supremacy of the rule of law," she emphasized.

Today, February 19, at 11am, the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine began its review of Yulia Tymoshenko’s complaint against the Central Election Commission.

On February 17, the court suspended the CEC decision establishing the results of the election.

The case will be heard by a full panel of judges of the Higher Administrative Court, except those judges absent for legitimate reasons. The judge-rapporteur for the case will be Oleksandr Nechytailo.
