The coalition is small for the stable and smooth work of the parliament, Yuri Lutsenko, the head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction, has said behind-the-scenes in the Supreme Rada.

“Sure, I see that the coalition is small, and 240 deputies, including 227 members of the factions that are members of the coalition, are insufficient for stable and smooth work of the parliament. Yet, no one promised peace to us,” Lutsenko said. Earlier, he said that there is a coalition of the 236 deputies of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc and the People’s Front in the Supreme Rada. 

As EADaily reported earlier, on April 14, the Supreme Rada approved the new Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman. Yulia Tymoshenko, leader of the Batkivshchyna Party, dismissed vote calling it “oligarchs’ coup” to secure their vested interests. She said her party joins the opposition. At the same time, she said Batkivshchyna will initiate an application to the Constitutional Court over illegitimate appointment of Groysman’s Cabinet. Vadim Rabinovich, an MP from the Opposition Bloc, said his party boycotts the parliament meeting. He said the new coalition and the government would operate for no longer than two months.
