#AceWorldNews – KIEV – March 29 – Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko has been nominated a candidate for presidency in the May 25 early election by her Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party.
Her nomination took place at a party congress under-way here.
“The most important task now is unity of the people,” she said at a congress of her Batkivshchina (Fatherland) Party, choosing to say several sentences in the Russian language.
“Let’s stop fighting. We need the words and the principles that will infuse the entire country with new energies.
Along with it, she revealed her plans “to wage a personal war on oligarchs”.
Timoshenko believes that Ukraine needs to get integrated in the EU “within the shortest term possible.”
“Given the current situation, it’s important to integrate in the Western defence alliances but Ukraine should continue building efficient Armed Forces all the same.”

#AceWorldNews – WINSOR – March 27 – Boris Berezovsky’s death was caused by hanging, consistent with self-application of the ligature, said Simon Poole, the Home Office pathologist who carried out the post-mortem examination on the exiled Russian ex-oligarch.
There was no suggestion of a violent struggle involving a third party, RIA Novosti quoted Poole as saying.
The inquest in Windsor’s Guildhall also heard that no suicide note was found after Berezovsky’s body was discovered slumped on the floor at his ex-wife’s luxury property in Ascot, Berkshire, on March 23 last year.
