“The situation in the Parliament – a tragicomedy and a farce. MPs admit the government is not satisfactory, but can not provide a vote for the resignation of the government,” he said.

Slutsky stated that “the President (Peter) Poroshenko demanded the reformatting of the Cabinet, calling for the resignation of Prosecutor General and the Prime Minister with the phrase “to restore the confidence of the authorities”. “It is evident that it did Poroshenko under pressure from the West, threatening to deprive Kiev of loans without the reforms… But the Prosecutor is at this moment on vacation, and the Parliament may not gain the necessary votes for a vote of no confidence in the government. All this is reminiscent of a good mine at bad game “, – said the Deputy .

The Verkhovna Rada has not adopted a resolution of no confidence in the current government, headed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk. For this resolution 194 deputies voted instead of the required 226. As a result, in the Parliament there is a paradoxical situation – the deputies for a few minutes before it recognized the unsatisfactory work of the government, but to send him to resign failed.

Happy for almost four hours discussing the government’s report for the past year. Before that, the President of the country Petro Poroshenko delivered an address to the nation, which in essence called on Yatsenyuk to resign voluntarily, because 70 percent of the population dissatisfied with the government.
