The statement was posted at the BYuT`s official web site

The Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko does not see any other coalition but the democratic one, and the fruitful joint voting with the Party of Regions on the issues that are not top-priority for the state is not any treason.

The respective statement was posted at the official web site of BYuT.

As UNIAN reported earlier,  on Tuesday, September 2, Tymoshenko`s party joined forces with the pro-Russian opposition led by Yanukovych during yesterday`s vote to back the laws that curtail the president`s powers.

``Every law that was voted in the parliament contradicts Ukraine`s constitution,`` Arseniy Yatsenyuk, speaker of parliament and a member of Yushchenko`s party, said yesterday in a statement on the parliament`s Web site. ``Unfortunately, we faced collusion. Political forces made a new configuration.`` Speaker Arseniy Yatseniuk left the plenary session saying he does not want to “split the coalition”.

The Our Ukraine – People’s Self-Defense Bloc called BYuT’s actions a treason and quitted the democratic coalition and the government of Yulia Tymoshenko.
