Yulia Tymoshenko is a Ukranian politician born in Dnepropetrovsk in 1960. She was twice elected as Ukranian prime minister in 2005 and 2007. Tymoshenko was one of the leaders of the Orange Revolution in Ukraine when mass protests against rigged election results led to a second election being held. The second election led to the premiership of Victor Yushenko. [1].

She has twice been ranked by Forbes magazine among the most powerful women in the world; during her first term, in 2005, she was ranked third.[2]
