Tymoshenko experienced a rise in power under the Soviet system, but it
was after the demise of the HYPERLINK

Union that she rose to particular prominence, directing several
energy-related companies and acquiring a significant fortune between
1990 and 1998. During privatization in Ukraine, which mirrored that in

nicknamed «gas princess» in light of accusations that she has been
reselling enormous quantities of stolen gas and avoiding HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxation» \o «Taxation» taxation of
those deals.

In the business period of her life, Tymoshenko involved business
relations (either co-operative or hostile) with many important figures
of Ukraine, first of all, in HYPERLINK

Yulia Tymoshenko is married to Oleksandr Tymoshenko. During the early
years of her political career, the two were parted for years when Mr.
Tymoshenko was escaping arrest. The couple appear together very rarely.
They have a daughter Yevhenia (born in 1980). HYPERLINK

Political career

Early career

Yulia Tymoshenko moved into politics in 1996, and was elected to the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verkhovna_Rada» \o «Verkhovna
Rada» Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament) from the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirovohrad_Oblast» \o «Kirovohrad Oblast»
Kirovohrad Oblast , winning a record 92.3% of the vote in her
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constituency» \o «Constituency»
constituency . She was re-elected in 1998 and 2002. In 1998, she became
the Chair of the Budget Committee of Verkhovna Rada.

From 1999 to 2001, Tymoshenko was the Deputy Prime Minister for fuel and
energy sector in the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabinet_of_Ministers_of_Ukraine» \o
«Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine» cabinet of HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktor_Yushchenko» \o «Viktor Yushchenko»
Viktor Yushchenko . She was fired by President HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonid_Kuchma» \o «Leonid Kuchma» Leonid
Kuchma in January 2001 after developing a conflict with the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_oligarch» \o «Business oligarch»
oligarchs in the industry.

In February 2001, Tymoshenko was arrested on charges of forging
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Customs» \o «Customs» customs
documents and smuggling of gas between 1995 and 1997 (while president of
HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Energy_Systems_of_Ukraine» \o
«United Energy Systems of Ukraine» United Energy Systems of Ukraine )
but was released several weeks later. Her political supporters organized
several protest rallies near the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lukyanivska_Prison» \o «Lukyanivska
Prison» Lukyanivska Prison where she was held in custody. According to
Tymoshenko, the charges were fabricated by Kuchma’s regime, under the
influence of oligarchs threatened by her efforts to root out corruption
and institute market-based reforms. In spite of being cleared of the
charges, HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow» \o «Moscow»
Moscow maintained an arrest warrant for Tymoshenko should she enter
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russia» \o «Russia» Russia
until her dismissal as Prime Minister over 4 years later.

In addition, Tymoshenko’s husband, Oleksandr, spent two years in hiding
in order to avoid incarceration on charges the couple said were
unfounded and politically motivated by the former Kuchma administration.

Campaigns against Kuchma and 2002 election

Once the charges were dropped, she became one of the leaders of
street-level HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukraine_without_Kuchma» \o «Ukraine
without Kuchma» campaigns against President Kuchma for his alleged
role in the murder of the journalist HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgiy_R._Gongadze» \o «Georgiy R.
Gongadze» Georgiy R. Gongadze . In this campaign, Tymoshenko first
became known as a passionate revolutionary-like leader, an example of
this being a TV broadcast of her smashing prison windows during one of
the rallies.

The following year Tymoshenko was involved in a mysterious car accident
that she survived with minor injuries—an episode some believe may have
been a government assassination attempt. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l «_note-6» \o «» [10] During this
time, she founded HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yulia_Tymoshenko_Bloc» \o «Yulia
Tymoshenko Bloc» Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc (Блок Юлії Тимошенко), a
political bloc that received 7.2 percent of the vote in the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_parliamentary_election%2C_2002»
\o «Ukrainian parliamentary election, 2002» 2002 parliamentary election
. She is the head of the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All-Ukrainian_Union_Fatherland» \o
«All-Ukrainian Union Fatherland» Batkivshchina (Fatherland) political
party.

Tymoshenko’s critics have suggested that, as an oligarch, she gained her
fortune improperly. Some have speculated that her familiarity with the
illegal conduct of business common in Ukraine uniquely qualifies her to
combat corruption—if she is willing to do so. Her former business
partner, former Ukrainian Prime Minister HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavlo_Lazarenko» \o «Pavlo Lazarenko»
Pavlo Lazarenko , was convicted in the United States on charges of
billions-worth HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_laundering» \o «Money laundering»
money laundering , HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporate_crime» \o «Corporate crime»
corruption and HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraud» \o
«Fraud» fraud . HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l «_note-7»
\o «» [11]

Despite this questionable past, her transition from oligarch to reformer
was believed by many to be both genuine and effective. As energy Deputy
Prime Minister, she virtually ended many corrupt arrangements in the
energy sector. Under her stewardship, Ukraine’s revenue collections from
the electricity industry grew by several thousand per cent. She scrapped
the practice of barter in the electricity market, requiring industrial
customers to pay for their electricity in cash. She also terminated
exemptions for many organizations which excluded them from having their
power disconnected. Her reforms meant that the government had sufficient
funds to pay civil servants and increase salaries.

2006 parliamentary election

After her dismissal Tymoshenko started to tour the country in a bid to
win the HYPERLINK

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yulia_Tymoshenko_Electoral_Bloc» \o «Yulia

return to the post of Prime Minister.

With the Bloc coming second in the election, and winning 129 seats, many
speculated that she might form a coalition with Yushchenko’s HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Ukraine» \o «Our Ukraine» Our Ukraine
party and the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialist_Party_of_Ukraine» \o «Socialist
Party of Ukraine» Socialist Party of Ukraine (SPU) to prevent the
HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Party_of_Regions» \o «Party of
Regions» Party of Regions from gaining power. Tymoshenko again
reiterated her stance in regard to becoming Prime Minister. However,
negotiations with Our Ukraine and SPU faced many difficulties as the
various blocs scrapped over posts and engaged in counter-negotiations
with other groupings.

On Wednesday HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_21» \o «June
21» June 21 , HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006» \o «2006»
2006 , the Ukrainian media reported that the parties had finally
reached a coalition agreement, which appeared to have ended nearly three
months of political uncertainty. HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l «_note-9» \o «» [13]

Tymoshenko’s nomination and confirmation as new Prime Minister was
expected to be straightforward. However, the nomination was
preconditioned on an election of her long-term rival HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petro_Poroshenko» \o «Petro Poroshenko»
Petro Poroshenko from Our Ukraine as the speaker of the parliament.
Within a few days after the coalition agreement had been signed, it
became clear that the coalition members mistrusted each other, since
they considered it to be a deviation from parliamentary procedures in
order to hold a simultaneous vote on Poroshenko as the speaker and
Tymoshenko as Prime Minister.

To aggravate matters, opposition members from the Party of Regions
blocked the parliament from Thursday, June 29 HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l «_note-10» \o «» [14] through
Thursday, July 6. HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l
«_note-11» \o «» [15]

The Party of Regions announced an ultimatum to the coalition, demanding
that the parliamentary procedures be observed, asking membership in
parliamentary committees to be allocated in proportion to seats held by
each fraction, chairmanship in certain Parliamentary committees as well
as Governorships in the HYPERLINK
«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subdivisions_of_Ukraine» \o «Subdivisions

The coalition agreement deprived the Party of Regions and the communists
of any representation in the executive and leadership in parliamentary
committees HYPERLINK «http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/» \l
«_note-Pravda_20070705» \o «» [16] while in the local regional
councils won by the Party of Regions, the coalition parties were locked
out of all committees as well.

Following a surprise nomination of HYPERLINK

«http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialist_Party_of_Ukraine» \o «Socialist
