KIEV, February 16, 17:03 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s irreconcilable opposition plans to set up a cabinet of ministers of its own, a regular Sunday “people’s viche” - an improvised popular decision-making assembly - was told Sunday afternoon by Arseny Yatsenyuk, a former speaker of the national parliament who currently leads the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party parliamentary faction.
“The opposition is setting up its own government upon a joint decision of its leaders and the former Prime Minister, Yulia Timoshenko,” he said.
He confirmed in this connection that he had turned down President Yanukovich’s offer to take the post of Prime Minister.
