'You have removed this cancer from our country': Ukraine former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko addresses protesters in Independence Square after release from prison
Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been hailed by thousands of opposition supporters in Independence Square in the heart of Kiev after being freed from prison. She addressed the crowds there from her wheelchair.
"You are heroes, you are the best of Ukraine," she told the vast crowd before breaking down in tears. She was speaking after President Viktor Yanukovych had left the capital Kiev and MPs voted to impeach him.
But she warned that the protesters should not think their job was done. "Until you finish this job and until we travel all the way, nobody has the right to leave," she said. "Because nobody could do it - not other countries, nobody - could do what you have done. We've eliminated this cancer, this tumour.": BBC World News
