Tymoshenko supports Georgia's territorial integrity
Candidate for the Ukrainian presidency and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has said that her political bloc's attitude to the Georgia-South Ossetia conflict remains unchanged, and that she supports Georgia's territorial integrity. "You know that our political force clearly adopted its position during the conflict, and we clearly expressed our position on Georgia's territorial integrity and on the non-recognition of [breakaway regions] that declared their independence, separation and alleged sovereignty. That's why, we're not just friends, we're partners," she said at a press conference in Kyiv on Jan. 14.Tymoshenko expressed hope that Ukraine and Georgia would continue to develop their good relations.
