Ukrainians do not support the former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and there are no protests against the court decision on her case, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said in the interview to the Reuters.

According to Azarov, if the Ukrainian people thought she had been sentenced illegally, "you would see something quite different."

Those who would like to "make a symbol of democracy fighter of Tymoshenko," should "look at the facts," which, according to him, the Swiss, American and Russian justice revealed. "Those were not political accusations, but criminal offences," Azarov said.

The Prime Minister said that "he would recommend nobody" to speak with Ukraine "the language of threats, boycotts and demarches." According to him, it will give nothing positive in the development of mutual relations. "Ukraine is a big country, it has the full potential to solve all the problems by itself," he said.

Azarov also said that hundreds of thousand of people arriving in Ukraine for Euro 2012, "personally convinced that in Ukraine there is democracy, freedom of speech and no violation of human rights because of beliefs or nationality."
