MP Anatoliy Hrytsenko (OU-PSD faction) claims that President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko gave time till the evening for BYuT and Party of Regions to form a coalition. At the same time, he did not orient OU-PSD to forming a coalition with BYuT.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he claimed this to journalists after the President’s meeting with the OU-PSD faction on Tuesday.

According to A.Hrytsenko, there was no discussion at the meeting but a President’s monolog, who, in fact, informed those present about his decision. “He thanked the faction for its courage, for heroism and braveness, for it defended the democratic values. The matter did not concern the expediency of forming a coalition between two or three factions (BYUT and OU-PSD, or BYuT, OU-PSD, and Lytvyn’s Bloc). The President just said that if another coalition – of BYuT, the Party of Regions and Communists – is not created till the evening, he will exercise his constitutional right”, A.Hrytsenko said.

Asked to specify how much time Yushchenko gave to finish the talks, A.Hrytsenko said: “The President gave time till the end of today”.

He added that Victor Yushchenko did not speak about resuming the democratic coalition. “The President did not orient the Our Ukraine for creating a coalition with BYuT or with Lytvyn”, A.Hrytsenko said.

In fact, MP Oleksander Tretyakov (OU-PSD faction) confirmed to journalists Hrytsenko’s words. In his opinion, the President is geared up for dissolving the parliament. He also confirmed there was no discussion at the meeting. “The President delivered a monolog”, O.Tretyakov said.
