‘We here in the United States have great affinity for those seeking democracy. We have learnt through trial and error that a true democracy cannot exist without free and fair and honest election. You cannot have a democracy when you arrest and harm peaceful protesters. Certainly, you cannot have a true democracy when you take political prisoners, like Tymoshenko simply because you disagree with the way they want to govern,’ he said.

‘When you look to the West, know that we are looking back with great admiration,’ the film star stressed. ‘We wish you the government you want and the strength to carry on!’
