Yulia Tymoshenko biography Yuliya Tymoshenko (Ukrainian: Юлія Тимошенко) (born November 27, 1960, in Dnipropetrovs'k, Ukrainian SSR) was appointed Prime Minister of Ukraine by President Viktor Yuschenko on 2004-01-24 (the post must be ratified by the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Parliament). She is a career politician and leader of the Bat'kivshchyna (Батьківщина, Motherland) party and the Yuliya Tymoshenko Bloc.

She is widely considered as the most significant ally of Viktor Yushchenko (whose deputy she was as prime minister), especially throughout the 2004 presidential election. She was also one of the key leaders of the Orange Revolution inspired by those elections. In this period, some media publications dubbed her the "Joan of Arc of the Orange Revolution". Tymoshenko is considered to be among the wealthiest people of Ukraine.

Tymoshenko's origins have been the basis of some debate. Some have claimed that her maiden name is Grigyan, and that she is half-Armenian on her father's side. However, her supporters insist that it is instead Telegina. Her critics claim that this is an attempt to prevent accusations of being involved in foreign interventionism.

She married Alexander Tymoshenko, a mid-level Soviet community party bureaucrat, in 1979, and began rising through a number of positions under the Soviet system. She graduated from Dnipropetrovs'k State University with a degree in economics in 1984, and went on to gain a candidate degree (the equivalent of a Ph.D.) in economics. She has since authored about 50 papers.

Tymoshenko experienced a rise in power under the Soviet system, but it was after the demise of the Soviet Union that she rose to particular prominence, directing several energy-related companies and acquiring a significant fortune between 1990 and 1998. From 1995 to 1997, Tymoshenko was the president of United Energy Systems of Ukraine, a privately owned company which became the main importer of Russian natural gas in 1996.

However, Tymoshenko's critics have suggested that some of her fortune was gained through money laundering and other illegal dealings. She was briefly arrested in the Russian Federation in February 2001, but was subsequently released. It has been claimed that she is still wanted by the Russian government on various financial crime charges.

Tymoshenko made a move into politics in 1996, and was elected as a representative of Kirovohrad oblast, winning a record 92.3% of the vote in her district. She was re-elected in 1998 and 2002. In 1998, she became the Chair of the Budget Committee of the Ukrainian parliament. From 1999 to 2001, Tymoshenko was the deputy prime minister for fuel in the energy sector in the government of Viktor Yushchenko.

Tymoshenko was fired by President Leonid Kuchma in January 2001, on charges of forging customs documents and smuggling Russian natural gas while she was the president of United Energy Systems of Ukraine between 1995 and 1997. She was arrested in February 2001 but was released and cleared of charges several weeks later. According to Tymoshenko, the accusations were fabricated by Kuchma's regime, under the influence of coal industry oligarchs threatened by her efforts to root out corruption.

After her release, Tymoshenko became one of most outspoken leaders of the Ukrainian opposition, attacking Kuchma over corruption and the death of Georgiy Gongadze, an opposition journalist who was kidnapped and killed in late 2000. She then founded the Yuliya Tymoshenko Bloc (Блок Юлії Тимошенко), a political party that received 7.2% of the vote in the 2002 parliamentary election.
