The media pressure resulting in her release went into overdrive just in time for the Kiev demonstrations of 2014. Surprise, surprise...

For several years now, we were sold that Yulia Tymoshenko was a charming and innocent politician, sent to prison by a kleptomaniac Yanukovich. She was serving time for embezzlement yet released under intense EU pressure and media presenting her as snow white being abused by ogres.

German Der Spiegel has turned this image of the ‘gas princess’ on its head though, by publishing the contents of several internal emails, written by employees of a PR company paid to ‘assist’ in securing her release.

Turns out, Yulia herself seems to have been exposed as a total con artist. All those whiny claims of suffering this or that inhumane treatment, MSM press lenses in tow were a complete sham. Bought and paid for. The ‘should be in jailbird’ is involved in a scandal that gives us a peek into a web of corruption that includes the likes of the now infamous Ukrainian Interior Minister, Arsen Avakov.

As fate would have it, she was set free just in time to roll in for a front stage wheelchair seat to the Maidan coup being prepped in Ukraine and proclaim; “We've eliminated this cancer, this tumour”.
