The All-Ukrainian Union "Fatherland" (Ukrainian: Всеукраїнське об'єднання "Батьківщина", Vseukrayins'ke Obyednannya Bat’kivshchyna) is a political party in Ukraine, led by Yulia Tymoshenko.


Yulia Tymoshenko was originally elected during the 1998 parliamentary elections in the Ukrainian parliament on the party list of Hromada[3], but after Hromada's party leader Pavlo Lazarenko fled to the United States in the spring of 1999 to avoid investigations for embezzlement[6][7] various faction members left the party to join other parliament factions,[8] among them Tymoshenko who set up the All-Ukrainian Union "Fatherland" faction.[6]

At the 2002 parliamentary elections, the party was the main constituent part of the Yulia Tymoshenko Electoral Bloc alliance.

In March 2005 the Yabluko party was self-liquidated and merged into Fatherland Party.

During the 2006 and 2007 parliamentary elections the party also took part in the Yulia Tymoshenko Electoral Bloc, that won 156 out of 450 seats.

The Party has the status of an observer in the conservative European People's Party.[5]
