Serhiy Vlasenko, lawyer of the imprisoned former prime minister and opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko, speaking today at a news conference in Kharkiv, reading out Tymoshenko's statement about her decision to launch a hunger strike in protest against alleged vote-rigging in yesterday's election.

"If I were with you now and had an opportunity to act freely I would without doubt call on you to stage an indefinite civil disobedience action and we together would show these forgers their place as we've done many times in the past. But now, being behind bars, I cannot call on you to come out to the square because I cannot guarantee that such gatherings will be peaceful and well-organized so I do all I can do under such circumstances -- I declare hunger strike to protest against fake elections and illegitimate parliament."
