KIEV, February 16, 16:54 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s opposition plans to form its own government, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, one of the leaders of the opposition party Batkivshchina (Fatherland), said on Sunday, addressing those who gathered in Kiev’s central Independence Square for a routine “popular veche” (a self-styled popular assembly of the irreconcilable opposition leaders and activists and their supporters - Itar-Tass).

“The opposition is forming its own government, this was a joint decision of the opposition leaders and former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko (who is currently serving a seven-year prison term on charges of acting in excess of her office duties while signing gas contracts with Russia in 2009 - Itar-Tass),” he said.

He once again reiterated his decision to refuse from the post of Ukraine’s prime minister offered to him by President Viktor Yanukovich in a bid to settle the current political crisis.
