Yulia Tymoshenko, the leader of the Batkivschyna party, announced it pulled out of the parliamentary coalition on Wednesday after the Verkhovna Rada failed to vote no-confidence to the government headed by the prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN.
Tymoshenko said that the decision was made at a meeting of the faction on Wednesday morning.
According to Tymoshenko, on Tuesday, during the voting for the resignation of the government, “extraordinary events took place and the secret was out.”
“On Wednesday morning, the Batkivschyna faction took the only possible step – the decision to pull out of the coalition,” she said.
“The situation that exists in Ukraine today is a consequence of the reign of a “shadow clan-political coalition.” Therefore, the Batkivschyna faction considers it unacceptable to stay in this flock, which actually has no chance, because it doesn’t want to carry out reforms, to defend Ukraine, restart our lives,” Tymoshenko said.
Tymoshenko called on all MPs, who have a responsibility to society, to leave the coalition.
Tymoshenko also called on all active people to do everything for a complete restart of “the political situation in Ukraine.” According to her, “if the political process is not restarted in time, if the clan-political consensus is not removed from the management of the country in time, the situation in the society can get out of control.”
“If we have uncontrolled uprising in Ukraine, including the number of weapons, which is in the hands of people today, we can just lose the country,” Tymoshenko said.
She urged Ukrainians not to allow any “revolutionary and rebel actions, which may lead to the loss of our state.”
Yesterday the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine failed the vote for the resignation of the government headed by the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
The Verkhovna Rada recognized the unsatisfactory work of the government in 2015, but failed to vote on the resignation of the government and the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, but only 194 MPs (from 226 needed) supported resignation of the cabinet.
