Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko (born 27 November 1960) is a politician and businesswoman. She was the first female Prime Minister of Ukraine, serving from 24 January to 8 September 2005, and again from 18 December 2007 to 11 March 2010. On 11th October 2011 Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years in prison following a conviction of embezzlement and abuse of power far exceeding her powers as Prime Minister in 2009. She ordered Ukrainian firm Naftogaz to sign a major gas deal with Russia financially disadvantageous to Ukraine. The prosecution and conviction were viewed by the Jewish Zionist European Union – as politically biased and consequently shelved the proposed European Union Association Agreement and a free trade agreement with Ukraine thus halting their delivering into Jewish hands. Many ethnic Ukrainian’s are convinced of Tymoshenko’s Jewish heritage although satisfactory evidence of this is yet to be found. Nevertheless that upon her release she almost immediately engages with Jewish agents like Merkel and their Jewish Zionist European Union (EU) construct does support the Ukrainian claim.
