People’s Union Our Ukraine political party initiates an all-Ukrainian unifying convention of national-democratic forces.
The respective statement of the PUOU Party Council was forwarded to UNIAN.
The document reads that “as a result of a plot in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine got into an extremely dangerous situation. Having destroyed the Democratic Coalition and joined in a conspiracy the Party of Regions, the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko created a pro-Kremlin majority together with them. Having a constitutional majority in parliament and a control over the executive power, the conspirators kicked off a large-scale attack on fundamentals of the Ukrainian state and democracy. BYuT, the Party of Regions, and Communists, are striving, contrary to the people’s will, to revise the Ukrainian Constitution and give all power to the hands of the pro-Kremlin parliamentary oligarchs”.
PUOU believes that the recent actions of Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, for instance, the defense of non-supervised actions of the Black Sea Fleet at the Ukrainian territory, the refusal to solve problems of double citizenship and to defend the information security of Ukraine, blockade of Odessa-Brody project implementation, are aimed at destruction of the state policy in the sphere of security and defense.
People’s Union Our Ukraine call on everybody, for who the values of independence and freedom are more important than personal or group interests, to unite around President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko, as a guarantor of the national state, and around Our Ukraine, as the only real force defending Ukrainian interests in the current Verkhovna Rada.
Considering all this, Our Ukraine initiates carrying out an all-Ukrainian unifying conventions, which will give parties, politicians, and public figures an opportunity to unite into a single national-democratic force able to resist the Kremlin-oligarchic revenge.
Our Ukraine also called on BYuT members to put interests of nation before the interests of party leaders, to refuse being accomplices of the plot, and to take part in the unification process of Ukrainian democratic forces.
