KIEV, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's parliament is unlikely to appoint a new prime minister at the Verkhovna Rada's plenary session on Tuesday, Deputy Speaker Ruslan Koshulynskiy told lobby correspondents, adding that a coalition government had not been formed.

Earlier, parliamentary Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said a coalition and a new government will be formed in Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on Thursday, February 27.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk, head of the Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party’s faction in the national parliament, said protesters who demonstrated in Kiev’s Independence Square, known as Maidan, should be invited to a coalition government and get ministerial positions in it. 

Elmar Brok, chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the European Parliament, urged the Ukrainian parliament to form a broad-based government that will carry out reforms and guarantee territorial integrity and unity of society.

He also offered support to judicial inquiries with regard to people responsible for violations of human rights and killings, provided such investigation is conducted in accordance with law.
