She says MPs are bribed

BYuT leader Yulia Tymoshenko is going to announce the formation of inter-factional oppositional group next Tuesday, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.

      She stated that at the briefing held in the parliament on Wednesday.

      “If the broad coalition is not officially registered by next Tuesday we will form an inter-factional oppositional group,” she said.

      Tymoshenko has also noted that BYuT is forced to wait for the outcomes of coalition talks between Our Ukraine and pro-governmental coalition.

      “It is not clear if Our Ukraine is going to join this coalition. I cannot say it right now,” she added.

      Tymoshenko also raised concerns about bribe attempts of oppositional MPs.

      “Each MP knows that joining anti-crisis coalition will bring him $3-5 million.

Some of them cannot stand the temptation,” pointed out Tymoshenko.

      “They tried to alter Regulations of the Parliament so that traitors are able to form their own faction that would join anti-crisis coalition.”

      According to her, BYuT MPs are going to make statements and officially declare what bribes they have been offered.
