The leader of the all-Ukrainian association Batkivshchyna (Motherland), which unites more than 150 thousand most active Ukrainian citizens.
"Tymoshenko is steadily ranked among top five most prominent Ukrainian politicians..."
Yuliya Tymoshenko was born in 1960 in the city of Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine). She received university education as an economist-cyberneticist and earned a candidate of economic science degree. She authored more than 50 research works.
Tymoshenko started her career as an economist at Dnipropetrovsk mechanical engineering plant; later on she headed one of Ukraines major industrial corporations, then was elected a memberl of parliament and the head of the Verkhovna Rada Budget Committee. She served as a vice prime minister for fuel and energy sector in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
(snip)When in Cabinet, Tymoshenko took the unprecedented steps to de-criminalize the backbone of Ukraines economy, its fuel and energy sector. In 2000, the Government paid to the population the additional UAH 18 billion, out of which UAH 9 billion was raised through withdrawing costs from the shadow economy, prohibition of barter and introduction of the principles of competition into the energy market. Being deprived of their shadow incomes by Tymoshenkos reforms, the financial and industrial lobbyists from the presidential circles got the President to sign the decree on her dismissal in January 2000.
In February 2001, Tymoshenko headed the united democratic opposition, which demanded the dismissal of President Leonid Kuchma suspected of a number of crimes, such as involvement in the murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze, falsification of the presidential and parliamentary election results, power abuse, corruption, etc.
On February 13, Yuliya Tymoshenko was arrested on charges brought by the Prosecutor Generals office against her. General public regarded this fact as a savage punishment of the democratic movement.

Not too shabby.
Thanks for the pics. She's easy on the eyeballs.
Seems to be smart as a whip, too. I hope to find a woman like that someday . . .
Glad to oblige, especially given the loveliness of Miss Tymoshenko. And just imagine -- she's 44 years old, too!
Pretty eyes. But I bet she has rotten teeth. All them Ruskies do.
"But I bet she has rotten teeth."
Easily correctable. More so than the complete visual package....... which needs no "enhancement" at all...
Way, WAY, over dressed. No beach/volleyball/workout shots?...
She's got every look covered, including ba**-buster! Soft, thoughtful, stern, smart, etc...Definitely a babe and seemingly Conservative! A keeper...? I'll let YOU be the judge...
Do all economists look like this?
Most like Milton Friedman
Now that's a Laffer...(rimshot!)
Exactly what I was thinking.
We need to see her in the swimsuit competition.
Some find the glass half full. Some find the glass half empty. And then there are a few that will pour half of a full glass out into the toaster.
