KIEV, March 30. /TASS/. The leader of Ukraine’s parliamentary faction Batkivshchina (Fatherland) Yulia Tymoshenko has laid down five conditions for joining the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) coalition.
"The first one is breaking of ties between politicians and the clans. The Batkivshchina party is not seeking any posts in the government. The second one is economic reforms in the country," Tymoshenko said Wednesday.
Another requirement is a drastic change of the policy regarding landowners.
Also, Tymoshenko faulted the government of Arseniy Yatsenyuk for failing to organize the work with the International Monetary Fund.
"The IMF is an instrument, which enables Ukraine to overcome the financial and economic crisis but if this instrument is controlled by a waste of skin and a person who is all at sea something similar to the Yatsenyuk’s government happens and the policy of running the country is failed," she said.
On February 16, the Ukrainian parliament voted the cabinet’s work unsatisfactory, but was short of votes to send it into resignation. A no-confidence vote was supported by 194 lawmakers whereas at least 226 votes are needed to pass a resolution. These events triggered a political crisis in which the Batkivshchina (Fatherland) faction and several lawmakers from the pro-presidential Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction withdrew from the coalition. The Samopomoshch (Self-assistance) followed the lead on the next day leaving the coalition with only 215 votes which are not enough to take majority-vote decisions.
