KIEV, April 26. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Sunday voiced criticism of the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) factions in the Ukrainian parliament led by former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko for its "destructive policy."
"I call on my former teammates from the Batkivshchnina faction to stop the destructive policy. Stop struggling for power, you have already been there," he told Ukraine’s television Channel 5.
He said opponents to the current authorities were seeking to take the prime minister’s office. "If the coalition breaks now, an unpredictable situation may emerge," he said.
"Conflicts is a perpetual problem with democrats, who find it next to impossible to get on in a coalition," Yatsenyuk said. "They’d better calm down and realize their political responsibility before the country and each Ukrainian." He pledged he and the president would do their best to prevent a coalition crisis like the one of ten years ago, when such crisis had triggered the government resignation. Now, Yatsenyuk noted, the country was facing numerous challenges and was unable to stand another clash for power. "Politicians must give up populism, cynicism and lies and be responsible and wise," he underscored.
