Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko will appeal to the head of the National Anti-Corruption Committee, President Viktor Yanukovych, demanding that a number of corruption issues be made a priority.

"Today this appeal will be sent to Yanukovych and released to the media," Yulia Tymoshenko said in opening the government meeting on Monday, according to her offical website.

According to her, priority should be given to the issue of "the country losing the Black Sea shelf." "Today we will present all documents and evidence that there was large corruption based on Prime Minister Yanukovych’s resolution."

The second issue she believes should be the activities of RosUkrEnergo, "which for many years depleted our gas system."

Yulia Tymoshenko noted that the current Head of the Presidential Administration, Serhiy Lyovochkin, is a mastermind and representative of RosUkrEnergo. "That’s why I think it would be logical to review this corrupt involvement."

Yulia Tymoshenko also believes that the issue of Viktor Yanukovych’s illegal privatization of the residence in Mezhyhirya should also be considered. "I think this will be the first major step in the fight against corruption through the newly-created National Anti-Corruption Committee," she said.

The return of Mezhyhirya to state ownership will be evidence of the new leadership’s fight against corruption. "I will believe that Yanukovych will fight corruption is he starts with himself and with the return of Mezhyhirya. And if he returns Mezhyhirya to the state, that he corruptly took, then there is hope that someone in the state will fight corruption," she stressed.

As reported, on February 26, Viktor Yanukovych signed Decree №275 creating the National Anti-Corruption Committee. According to the document, the president is the chairman of the committee.
