October 13, the leader of Batkivshchyna party Yulia Tymoshenko will take part in the trial of Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko in Moscow. The Ukrainian political scientist Pavlo Nuss wrote about it on his Facebook page.
According to the analyst, unofficial sources state that Tymoshenko has already visited Moscow during the presidential campaign in 2014. However, the politician ended her business in the spring of this year, formally – by lapse of time. In fact, the Russian liaisons of the "Batkivshchyna" contributed to it, after finding Ihor Bakay, the former team-mate of Yulia Tymoshenko.
In addition, according to Nuss, the escaped oligarch have friendly contacts with Viktor Medvedchuk.
So what did Yulia forget in Moscow? The Ukrainian political scientists are puzzled. According to Nuss, actually Tymoshenko will meet with Putin, because she always knew how to find the path to his heart, and this time she will come almost immediately after the birthday of the Russian president.
It is unlikely to help to unleash the release of Nadiya Savchenko, but Yulia Tymoshenko will do a memorable PR stunt.
The expert suggests that the politician is unlikely to have any problems with the permission to come to Moscow, but she may not be allowed to enter the court. Again, there might start a "show" at the courthouse, similar to the situation with the Pechersky Court, where the same happens regularly, says Pavlo Nuss.
In his opinion, the protection of Nadiya Savchenko is a perfect excuse not to criticize Putin for the invasion of Tymoshenko, who acted as a defender of Ukraine and so-called mother of the poor pilot, as well as the critic of the President, who has not decided to take this step.
But such a PR stunt of Tymoshenko will negatively affect the release of Sachenko, predicts Nuss, because it will be the first member of the Ukrainian parliament and the prisoner, who was accused of murder "proving" it in the court.
Nuss recalls that Russia is really interested in regaining its lobby in the Verkhovna Rada. The Party of Regions did not go to the election, the Communists did not pass the 5% barrier, Serhiy Tihipko got an uninfluential fraction of the minimum number of people. Yulia Tymoshenko is a different story. Her "Batkivshchyna" beated out Anatoliy Hrytsenko and approached Oleh Lyashko. And Tymoshenko will have a unique opportunity to get the Russian gas or the Russian money, concludes Nuss.
