“I can tell you right away – we won’t go to the court. The reason is simple: we have appealed to these courts several times during the elections, but after the so-called reform of the judicial system the current President has privatized the judicial system, and today it works fake just as the voting for Poroshenko was conducted. And it won’t make any real decisions concerning the falsifications done,” Tymoshenko said.
She called such judicial proceedings a waste of time.
“We will waste our time and will hope for something which is pointless. There is no judicial system in Ukraine. It is in the pocket of every president. So it is unreal to appeal against electoral falsifications,” she explained.
Tymoshenko also noted that she and her team would not carry out protests against the elections’ results.
“You know where our country is now. You now that it is barely surviving. We are aware that any protest might become a platform for an aggressor state. Undermining of Ukraine’s stability, bringing us to inner confrontation - I will never let it happen! We do not support such policy,” she added.
Volodymyr Zelensky enters the second tour of the elections with 30,23% of votes, while Petro Poroshenko, the current President of Ukraine, ranked second with 15,92%, as the Central Election Commission reported after processing 99% of the protocols.
