Ukraine's Tymoshenko denies making Moscow trip

KIEV, June 1 (RIA Novosti)-Yulia Tymoshenko has not made any recent trips to Moscow and is not planning to do so in the near future, the former Ukrainian prime minister's press secretary said Thursday.

Media had earlier reported that the heroine of the 2004 "orange revolution" had allegedly made a secret trip to the Russian capital to meet with officials, but the claim was met with a straightforward denial by her press secretary.

"Yulia Volodymyrovna did not go and is not planning to go to Moscow," he said.

The press secretary said Tymoshenko, who leads her eponymous bloc in Ukraine, was continuing to work on establishing a parliamentary coalition to end the deadlock in Russia's neighbor that emerged after the March 26 election.

"Until this work is completed, until a coalition has been formed, she will not be going anywhere," the press secretary said.
