Ukraine's President Viktor Yushchenko on Wednesday declared his support for a pro-Western Orange Revolution coalition in parliament and its choice for prime minister.

The statement was Yushchenko's firmest declaration of support for the two parties and meant that Orange Revolution heroine Yulia Tymoshenko was all but assured the prime minister's job.
