KIEV, March 20. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has reach an agreement with oligarch Igor Kolomoisky that the party Vozrozhdeniye (Revival) will join the coalition in the Verkhovna Rada (parliament), the Zerkalo Nedeli news outlet said on Sunday citing its sources.

"The first agreement the sides have reached is that the lawmaker group Vozrozhdeniye will join a new parliamentary coalition. Apart from that, Petro Poroshenko is reportedly worried over the information policy at Kolomoisky’s television channels concerning the presidential team," the media outlet said.

The Vozrozhdeniye party has 23 seats in the Verkhovna Rada. The local media say this party is sponsored by Kolomoisky.

The ruling coalition in the Ukrainian parliament initially comprised five parties, namely the pro-presidential Petro Poroshenko Bloc, Samopomoshch, Batkivshchina, the Radical Party and the prime minister’s Popular Front. The Radical Party quitted the coalition in the autumn of 2015. Following the Verkhovna Rada’s failure to send the Yatsenyuk government to resignation on February 16, another faction, Batkivshchina, and a number of lawmakers with the pro-presidential Petro Poroshenko Bloc and Samopomoshch also withdrew from the coalition stripping it of the majority of 226 votes needed to pass decisions.
