The Ukraine Army helped it’s people ~ Parliament in Ukraine has named its speaker as interim president. Oleksandr Turchynov takes charge following the dismissal of President Viktor Yanukovych on Saturday. Mr Turchynov told MPs they had until Tuesday to form a new unity government. Yulia Tymoshenko, who was freed from jail on Saturday, has ruled out becoming prime minister again. Her release was one of the conditions of the EU-Ukraine trade pact that Mr Yanukovych rejected last year. The move triggered the protests that led to the current crisis. The health ministry says 88 people, mostly protesters, are now known to have been killed in clashes since 18 February
Thousands of opposition supporters remain in Kiev’s Independence Square, heeding opposition calls not to disperse. In response to reports that her name was being mentioned as a possible candidate, Yulia Tymoshenko issued a statement reading: “No-one has agreed or discussed this with me. ”Thank you for your respect but I would like you not to consider my nomination for the post of the head of government. Mr Turchynov, a close associate of Ms Tymoshenko, described forming a unity government as a “priority task” ”We don’t have much time,” one of the opposition leaders, former world champion boxer Vitaly Klitschko, said as parliament began its debate. Speaking to the BBC, he also suggested a bid for the presidency in elections scheduled for 25 May. ”I want to make Ukraine a modern European country,” he said. “If I can do that through the president’s position, I will do my best.”
