Bundestag President says Tymoshenko 'unfit' to lead Ukraine

German Parliament chief Norbert Lammert said Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko is "as unfit for the president post as the ousted Viktor Yanukovych." Tymoshenko, who Thursday announced her candidacy for 25 May presidential elections, alienated German allies with a leaked phone conversation in which she said Putin should be shot.
