KIEV, June 22. /TASS/. Internal struggle within the ruling coalition in Ukraine is exacerbating due to its inability to solve the problems facing the country and internal contradictions, leader of Ukrainian Communists Petro Simonenko said on Monday at a meeting of the Unified European Left Group in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
He said Ukraine had accomplished no promise it had given to Europe. "No amendments are made to the constitution. Law on elections has been submitted only now. Elections are due in October but the law has not yet been considered," the press service of the Ukrainian Communist Party quoted Simonenko as saying.
The Minsk talks, according to the Ukrainian Communist leader, "have practically come to a deadlock, with no disarmament of illegal armed group and stockpiling weapons along the borders with the Donetsk and Luhansk regions."
"These developments seriously exacerbate struggle inside the ruling coalition," Simonenko said. "Poroshenko has embarked on a path of usurping power. He replaced the chief of Ukraine’s Security Service and appointed Saakashvili governor of the Odessa region. The situation at the border with Transdniestria is aggravating," he said.
