Russia has attacked Ukraine. Despite warnings from Western countries, Russia has made it clear by attacking that it is not afraid of anyone. Meanwhile, the people of Ukraine are missing their first female prime minister.
Amidst the attack of Russia, the people of Ukraine (Russia-Ukraine War) are missing Yulia Tymoshenko. Yulia was the first female prime minister of Ukraine. She took this responsibility twice and kept speaking openly against Russia. Yulia, an advocate of better relations with Western countries, tried to make Ukraine a part of NATO. However, during his time, Russia could never instill such fear.
Yulia was called gas queen
Yulia had openly challenged Russia many times. They were not ready to give even an inch of land to Russia without fighting. In the current crisis, the people of Ukraine are remembering their brave woman Prime Minister. They feel that if the country’s leadership was in Yulia’s hands, then the situation would not have been like this. Yulia was known as the Gas Queen in Ukraine because she had a huge gas business there.
Russia was openly threatened
Yulia Temosenkova was counted as Ukraine’s most successful business woman. Later she decided to enter politics and soon she became the first female prime minister of Ukraine. She was the Prime Minister of Ukraine for a few months in 2005 and then from 2007 to 2010. Despite being the leader of the opposition, Yulia’s aggressive attitude never diminished. She openly threatened Russia and said that she would not allow even an inch of land to be taken.
Orange Revolution was supported
Pro-Russian President Viktor Yushnkov won the 2004 election. Yulia, refusing to accept the election results, accused Victor of rigging, which led to the beginning of the ‘Orange Revolution’ in the country. In fact, the flag of Yulia’s party was orange and her party was openly opposing Victor, who was considered close to Russia. That’s why this movement was named ‘Orange Revolution’. This movement received a lot of support in Ukraine.
Sent to jail for corruption
Yulia contested the presidential election in 2010. However, he did not get victory. She lagged behind Viktor Yushnkov by only 3.3% of the vote. From then on his bad days started. While Yulia’s prime minister, President Yushnkov sent him to prison after accusing him of corruption in a gas deal with Russia. She remained in jail from 2011 to 2014. He was also tortured a lot in jail. Let us tell you that in 2005, Yulia was placed third in the list of most powerful women in the world by Forbes magazine. Yulia was the first female prime minister not only in Ukraine, but also in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
