KIEV, July 3. /TASS/. Personal interests of deputies of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada are beginning to prevail over state interests, the rightwing deputy Andrei Parubiy, a deputy speaker of the Ukrainian parliament said in an interview with the Kiev-based Channel 5.
"A knotty dialogue is underway and its knottiness is increasing as far as the local elections get closer," he said. "I’d like to say the local elections will be enveloped in an atmosphere where the interests of parties, self-positioning and own ranking are beginning to dominate over state interests."
He expressed the hope a coalition meeting that would be held next week and where President Poroshenko was expected to participate would see a frank and open discussion of existing controversies.
Poroshenko said earlier he was concerned by the future of the coalition in the Rada, as the deputies had revoked a previously adopted law on the restructuring of loans.
He said populist politicians seeking popularity with the crowds were putting all the tax payers into danger in an attempt to satisfy the wishes of 65,000 or so people - or one-tenth of the population - who could not service their foreign currency credits.
