I was very glad to see that Julia Tymashenko has been publicaly nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. What she did when she was in office was humanitarian; had it been done with agreement of her parliamentary colleagues, there would have been no fault.
But I believe she made the decision on their behalf, because she believed in the cause, and knew that as usual she would be able to sway a sufficient number of her parliamentary colleagues. I believe she made a decision to turn the taps on for the gas supply to Europe. It is the sort of administrative decision leaders preside over and nod, but let us say she carried it out almost alone....She did the right thing : she saved Europe from freezing in that very cold weekend. What she did was humanitarian, and in the view of so many of her countrymen and women, praiseworthy. She is a noble spirit, and I sincerely hope the government can consider her case fully in full light of her decision, and perhaps release her from imprisonment.
Her brave decision that cold weekend helped Europe from freezing to death in many instances. In my heart, Julia Tymashekno is a great spirit, worthy of the highest praise from humanity. If she is granted her freedom, it would be just. If she wins the Nobel, it would be totally appropriate, and bring added honour to her and her nation.
