Speaking of a yesterday's meeting of the faction, Burbak noted that the faction had “unanimously supported the coalition government and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk."

The MP assured that none of the deputies from the faction will vote for the expression of non-confidence in the Government.

Commenting on yesterday's decision of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko faction to vote for non-confidence in the government, Burbak pointed out that "our colleagues have finally listened to our interpretation, a reminder of the provisions of the Rada Regulations, which provide for a procedure of expression of non-confidence in the government: 150 signatures, 226 votes."

"So you take full responsibility for the formation of the government," he said.

In addition, when asked whether the People’s Front will leave the Coalition in case the  government is dismissed today, Burbak said that political consultations would be held.

"We will see," said the parliamentarian.
