KIEV, December 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Only two deputies have quit the parliament faction of the ruling Party of Regions after riot police in Kiev had forcefully dispersed hundreds of protesters, Ukrainian parliament speaker Vladimir Rybak said on Tuesday.
He read out the membership cancellation letters by David Zhvania and Inna Bogoslovskaya, saying there were “no other statements in the secretariat”.
Earlier, two more parliamentarians had stated their decision to quit the party, namely Viktor Bondar and Vladimir Melnichenko. However, there have been no membership cancellation letters from them as of yet.
After police had broken up the rally in Kiev protesting over the government decision to delay an association deal with the EU, reports appeared about withdrawals from the party on a massive scale.
The party faction believes this is done to unhinge party ranks and demonstrate its disunity.
