KIEV, December 19, 23:57 /ITAR-TASS/. The faction of the Communist Party in Ukrainian parliament has withdrawn signatures for the dismissal of Nikolai Azarov’s government, Piotr Simonenko, the Ukrainian Communist Party leader, said from the rostrum of the Supreme Rada (parliament) on Thursday.
“We, Communists, withdraw our signatures to the draft resolution on the government’s dismissal. We will not vote the same as nationalists [Freedom faction] who destroy monuments and stir up animosity in the country,” Simonenko said.
“We share the opinion that the government’s stand of keeping from the signing of the association agreement with the European Union and concluding promising agreements of advantage to our country with the Russian Federation on the deepening of cooperation and expanding the markets, cutting the gas price to 268 dollars per thousand cubic metres and receiving the loan of 15 billion dollars which is highly needed give the reason not to consider the cabinet’s dismissal now,” the Communist leader said.
Arseny Yatsenyuk, the leader of the Batkivshchina party, said three more signatures were needed to pass the resolution on the vote of no confidence in the cabinet. He said representatives of the Communist Party were among the signatories. As many as 226 votes are needed to pass the decision to dismiss the cabinet.
