KIEV, December 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s government will not voluntarily step down, First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Arbuzov said after a parliamentary session on Monday.
“The country finds itself in a serious situation. Officials have no right to voluntarily resign under such circumstances,” he said, adding that he personally was ready “to leave his post, if the parliament takes such a decision.”
“If a decision is taken, we will quit. But is it necessary to do today? Whether the country will benefit from this?” Arbuzov asked, noting that the cabinet “has a clear plan on how to improve the situation and it should be listened to.”
“We have to be heard out. It is necessary to understand how matters with European integration and investigation of protesters’ beating stand,” Arbuzov said.
