Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is refusing to recognize Viktor Yanukovych as the next president of Ukraine, claiming that he is seeking to establish an anti-Ukrainian dictatorship.  In a televised address to the nation on Monday, Ms. Tymoshenko issued a call for a coalition of patriotic and democratic forces to oppose the man who defeated her in the February 7th presidential election.  
In strong and uncompromising terms, Yulia Tymoshenko accused president-elect Viktor Yanukovych of serving the interests of oligarchs whose demand for cheap labor keeps ordinary Ukrainians impoverished and without rights.
Ms. Tymoshenko said it is time to set arguing aside and create a strong team in the Supreme Rada that will not allow what she called an "anti-Ukrainian dictatorship."
The president-elect's inauguration is scheduled for Thursday.
