KIEV, February 17. /TASS/. A political crisis has been artificially provoked in Ukraine to hold early parliamentary elections in the country, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told a government meeting on Wednesday.
"This is far from high democratic standards, parliament and the parliamentary system as such," Yatsenyuk said, commenting on Tuesday’s vote in the Supreme Rada on the results of the government’s work.
The Ukrainian government didn’t hear specific criticism or specific proposals in the parliament’s session hall, the premier said.
"This is an artificially provoked political crisis. Its aim is to hold early elections. This is the struggle for power while the government is struggling for the country," Yatsenyuk said.
After almost four hours of heated debates on the yearly report delivered by Prime Minister Yatsenyuk, the Ukrainian government failed to pass a vote of no-confidence in the government.
The Ukrainian MPs recognized the government’s work as unsatisfactory but fell short of 32 votes to deliver a no-confidence vote, with only 194 deputies supporting this measure.
