AFP , Monday 27 Jan 2014

Jailed Ukrainian former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko on Monday urged the opposition not to accept the "humiliating" terms of a deal proposed by President Viktor Yanukovych to end the country's crisis.

"I ask the opposition leaders to categorically not accept the humiliating conditions," said the 2004 Orange Revolution co-leader, whose plight has only been raised on occasion during the current protests. "I ask all Ukrainians to go forward, not to stop and not to weaken the force of their blow on the authorities," she said in a statement on her website.
