11 September 2015 13:22

Fatherland (Batkivshchyna) political party demands to reach a common clear-cut position in coalition, otherwise it will follow the Radical Party of Oleh Lyashko and pull out of the coalition, said Fatherland Party MP Vadim Ivchenko.

Fatherland MPs are unwilling to keep out of decisions made in Parliament. According to the MP, important laws proposed by the Fatherland have not been brought up for more than six months.

- We do not want to be extras in the Verkhovna Rada. Either we build the agenda along with the entire coalition, agree and reach a common position, or pull out of it, said Ivchenko.

It should be reminded that Sept 1 Radical Party of Oleh Lyashko pulled out of coalition. The party’s leader noted that his faction sees no sense to be involved in the coalition, which literally has been crushed by Poroshenko and Groisman. Lyashko ment adoption of the Constitution amendments, which was opposed by most coalition members and entailed tragic consequences.

- These are bloody provocations, which resulted in killing and injuring many people, said Oleg Lyashko.
