According to Ukrainska Pravda online edition, Yulia Timoshenko was asked
by a "horrified" Azeri reporter today at her press conference if it was
true that she was Armenian by origin. (The Russian media said her
father's surname was Grigyan). Timoshenko replied that she was in fact
Latvian on her father's part, and pledged to seek peace between
Armenians and Azeris.
