The Governor of the Odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili called the failure to vote on the resignation of the government of Ukraine “oligarchic coup”. He said in a statement in Facebook that is entitled “My call to PPB [the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko].in connection with oligarchic coup”.
“Yesterday something happened that always inevitably happens when after the revolution does not happen of revolutionary reforms, is the restoration of the old regime. I believe last in the country there was an oligarchic coup. Just like after the failures of the orange revolution [in 2004] came to power Yanukovych, yesterday, Akhmetov and other oligarchs, leaving their votes, the government again took control of the situation,” wrote Saakashvili.
He noted that the party “Batkivshchyna” “came out of the [ruling] coalition, the same thing is going to make [the party] “Self-help”. In this situation, according to the Governor, “to stay in the coalition would be a serious mistake Blok Petro Poroshenko”. “In any case it would mean that even those members of faction who voted for the resignation of the government, in case of withdrawal from the coalition, take full formal responsibility for yesterday’s oligarchic coup,” — said Saakashvili.
On the eve of the Verkhovna Rada failed to adopt a resolution of no confidence in the current government, led by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. In favor of the decision spoke only 194 deputies at necessary 226. If resolution by the Chairman of the presidential faction “Block of Petro Poroshenko” has gained the necessary votes, the Cabinet of Ministers was forced to resign.
After Yulia Tymoshenko announced the release of its factions — “Batkivshchyna” — from the ruling coalition (coalition of the left “Block of Petro Poroshenko”, “popular front” Prime Minister Yatsenyuk and “Self-help”). She urged all parliamentarians to follow suit. The faction also announced the recall of Minister of youth and sports Ihor Zhdanov from the government. Wednesday, 17 February, however, MP from the faction “Batkivshchyna” Igor Lutsenko said that Zhdanov would not leave the government, and that it was his “personal position”.
To vote for the reformatting of the Cabinet expressed on Tuesday the President of Ukraine. He stated the need for “a complete reboot” of the government, which, from the point of view of the head of state, has lost the trust of the population. “To restore trust [to the government], therapy does not need surgery” — stated the President.
Now return to the consideration of the resignation of the government deputies will only be able to session in September.
