KIEV, November 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition leaders plan to attend a cabinet meeting on Wednesday to get the government’s decision to suspend European integration overruled.
“We decided to visit the cabinet meeting with chairmen of parliamentary factions Udar (Punch) and Svoboda (Freedom) — Vitaly Klitschko and Oleg Tyagnibok,” leader of Batkivshchina (Fatherland) of jailed ex-prime minister Yulia Timoshenko, Arseny Yatsenyuk, said on Tuesday during an opposition protest in Kiev’s downtown.
“We demand the government should revoke its anti-constitutional and illegal decision to suspend preparations to sign an association agreement with the European Union,” he said, adding that under the Ukrainian legislation a member of parliament had the right to attend a cabinet meeting.
“Parliamentarians enjoy the right of a consultative vote,” Yatsenyuk said.
The Batkivshchina leader said a large-scale protest would be organised near the government’s building on Wednesday urging the government not to delay the signing of an association deal with the EU.
Opposition leaders will go to the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius on November 28-29 “to persuade European partners not to close the door for Ukraine,” Yatsenyuk said.
