KIEV, February 8. /TASS/. Three out of four ruling majority factions in the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (parliament) demand resignation of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatesnyuk, Yuri Lutsenko, the leader of the Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc faction, told journalists after a coalition meeting on Monday.
The only political force which is against this resignation is Yatsenyuk’s Popular Front.
"We have a parade of contradictory statements: the Popular Front is standing firm for Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, whereas three other factions (Pyotr Poroshenko Bloc, Batkivshchina, or Fatherland, and Samopomoshch, or Self-assistance) are standing firm against Yatsenyuk," Lutsenko said, adding that in a situation like that "the prime minister and the parliament must find a way out."
He did not rule out however a possibility of a compromise solution. "We are ready to speak under any conditions provided the cabinet continues to work," he said. "We don’t need a government as such, we need a government that will work. And for these ends support from the majority of lawmakers is needed."
"Today we have a full-blown political crisis, which requires politicians to stop their blackmail," Lutsenko said.
