KIEV, February 22. /TASS/. It is possible to overcome the political crisis in Ukraine only through complete reset of power, leader of the Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) faction Yuliya Tymoshenko has said.
"Today we have a full-blown political crisis, it is evident because the society said ‘no’ to this government. The Cabinet received an unsatisfactory mark from parliament. In any other country that would mean an automatic dismissal of the government and the automatic reset of all executive power," she told the Inter TV channel.
Tymoshenko noted that the no-confidence motion to the government was a show to maintain "the prime minister that would suit all", since part of the pro-presidential faction did not vote for this issue.
She noted that there was a shadow coalition in parliament that supported Yatsenyuk.
According to Tymoshenko, the prime minister and Cabinet members cling to their positions because of their desire to control the budget flows and make money from this. "The entire country says it is necessary to dismiss the government immediately. The parliament, all its factions, voted for its dismissal, but the prime minister clings (to power)," she said. "If the prime minister says that over the past year 50 billion hryvnia were taken from the budget illegally, that means that they earn billions every week and use every week to cash in on our national grief."
She voiced the conviction that "there are all necessary tools and opportunities" to overcome the crisis, "but this is not done because the interests are different - making money from war and budget."
On February 16, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada failed to dismiss the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. The no-confidence motion was supported by 194 parliamentarians instead of 226 required. As a result, a paradoxical situation emerged in parliament. A few minutes earlier, lawmakers recognized the government’s performance as unsatisfactory but were unable to oust the Cabinet from power.
