There is a conflict between the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky and the head of the Fatherland Party Yulia Tymoshenko. The Ukrainian leader called the transition of the ex-head of government into the opposition “a long tradition.” At the same time, he noted that he refused to accept the offer of Tymoshenko and appoint her comrades-in-arms to the “sweet” places in exchange for supporting all the initiatives of the “Servant of the People” in parliament. In response, the former prime minister recalled that excessive self-confidence played a cruel joke on Zelensky’s predecessors. What this confrontation can lead to is in RT.
Political friction between the current president of the country Vladimir Zelensky and the leader of the Fatherland party Yulia Tymoshenko is gaining momentum in Ukraine. The former Prime Minister of Ukraine and her faction officially joined the ranks of the opposition November, after the adoption of the Ukrainian Parliament in the first reading of the bill on lifting the moratorium on the sale of land for agricultural purposes. Then Tymoshenko appealed to the Constitutional Court of the country in connection with this legislative initiative.
However, Zelensky believes that the reasons for the transfer of Tymoshenko to the camp of opponents of the current government to may actually have other motives. According to the head of state, there is a “very ancient Ukrainian tradition” according to which the leader of the “Fatherland” once in five years goes into opposition to the current president, imitating concern for Ukrainian citizens.
“Yulia Vladimirovna told me that she was offering us new people for various positions. People who “will bring investment.” I wish we all were honest to the end. Yes, Julia Vladimirovna really offered. She brought a list of her people to be assigned to “sweet” places. In exchange, she promised to vote for all laws during the year along with the “Servant of the People” in the Verkhovna Rada. Of course, we refused. After all, the era of negotiation ended forever, ”Zelensky wrote on Facebook.
As a RT source in the Party of the People’s Party said, Tymoshenko in exchange for supporting all the bills proposed people close to her lead the State Agency for Management of the Exclusion Zone (oversees the exclusion zone near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant) and the State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine.

At the same time, the Ukrainian leader made a kind of compliment 58 – of the summer Yulia Vladimirovna.
“But look how beautiful the“ opposition ”has now. Such a figure! Do you know why? Because now they just don’t give her “sweets,” Zelensky concluded.
The response of the head of the Batkivshchyna party in social networks was not long in coming. Tymoshenko indicated that she would like to discuss with the president of Ukraine “the fate of the country”, but he chose a “different tone”. At the same time, she also recalled the “long-standing Ukrainian traditions.”
“Once every five years, it seems to some Ukrainian presidents that they took a jackpot! And then everything is according to the scenario … Well, you are in the know … In a word, we are waiting for you at corporate parties … You can with your piano, ”Tymoshenko wrote.
The politician probably hinted at the number 424 of the year “Game without pants” from the show “Evening Quarter”, in which Vladimir Zelensky “played” the piano with the help of his “genitals” “.

“No matter how the parliamentary elections end, we will not stand in opposition or on the sidelines, we will help the new president in everything “, She said in June.

“He is doing everything to set up a political elite against himself”
Vladimir Zelensky decided to violate all the rules of Ukrainian politics, the RT source in the Voice party believes.
“Consultations are ongoing, but no one ever reports them publicly. The new president is doing everything to set up a political elite against himself. To understand what this leads to, you can look at Petro Poroshenko. If Zelensky thinks that his rating in a year will be as high as now, he is mistaken, ”he emphasized.
