Ukraine's Tigipko says not to back both rivals in Feb runoff

The 3rd placed candidate in Ukraine's first round of a presidential election said on Wednesday he would not support either opposition leader Viktor Yanukovich or Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in a February runoff, Interfax news agency said.

"I have now taken up a position of neutrality. Let them carry out a political battle between themselves," former central bank chief Sergey Tigipko, who took 13 per cent of the vote on Sunday, said in an interview with Interfax.
