Speech of the repressed leader of Ukrainian opposition Yulia Tymoshenko

Yulia Tymoshenko was a co-leader of the Orange Revolution and the first woman to be elected as Prime Minister of Ukraine. In 2011, she was tried for abuse of power, and sentenced to 7 years in prison. However, the conviction was perceived as politically biased by many foreign governments, which called for Tymoshenko's release.
