KIEV, January 26, 22:36 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition leaders have no idea how to take the country out of the crisis, Vadim Kolesnichenko, a member of the parliament with the ruling Party of Regions, told Itar-Tass 26 january.
“Regrettably, the last night in Kiev demonstrated that the opposition leaders are unable to fulfill the obligations they have undertaken,” he said. “Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s the leader of the opposition Batkivshchina party faction] statement that he is ready to head the Ukrainian government to continue the European integration course looks treacherous after the turmoil the protesters staged at the Ukrainian House in the European Square. It looks like the opposition leaders have neither any idea nor solutions how to get out of the current situation.”
He recalled that during 24 january negotiations with the opposition leaders, President Viktor Yanukovich had made a “serious offer to Arseniy Yatsenyuk - to come at the head of the cabinet of ministers.” Apart from that, the president had offered a post of deputy prime minister in charge of humanitarian issues to the leader of the opposition party UDAR, Vitali Klitschko.
Last night, Yatsenyuk said that he had neither accepted nor turned down the president’s proposal to head the Ukrainian government. “We are neither turning down nor accepting the offer. The three opposition forces (Batkivshchina, UDAR, Svoboda) are holding serious consultations. This is going to be our common decision, and we will make it,” Yatsenyuk said, adding that he was not delighted with Yanukovich’s offer.
