Jesep: “Viktor Fedorovych, God made the Dnieper River in a shorter amount of time than it’s taking you to make a decision on Ms. Tymoshenko”

“Regardless of what you think of Ms. Tymoshenko she’s is now a larger than life figure.  If she dies while in prison due to Yanukovych’s earlier show trial she’ll become a heroine of mythical proportions. This is the stuff of Hollywood movies and Broadway musicals.  Think Eva Peron. Evita!”
