WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) - The United States on Saturday welcomed the release from prison of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and pledged to work with Russia and European and international organizations to support a unified and democratic Ukraine.

"We have consistently advocated a de-escalation of violence, constitutional change, a coalition government, and early elections, and today's developments could move us closer to that goal," the White House said in a statement. (Reporting By Mark Felsenthal; Editing by Doina Chiacu)
