Democratic coalition is a “good news” for Ukraine - Tymoshenko
PM comments on the recent political developments
Decision on the creation in the Verkhovna Rada of a new coalition has put an end to the political crisis and provided all grounds to minimize an impact of the global financial crisis on Ukraine. Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko stated this at a Government’s sitting on Wednesday, the government`s press-office reported.
“I believe that the political crisis end will provide us with all grounds to make confident steps, first of all in the Parliament, towards minimization of the global financial crisis impact on Ukraine. I am sure that the political crisis end gives us much more hopes for Ukraine`s easily overcoming all challenges of the global financial-economic crisis,” Yulia Tymoshenko said.
The Head of Government noted that decision on forming the democratic coalition was a “good news” for Ukraine. “You know that, yesterday, after the long political crisis, we did a very confident and right step for revival of the democratic coalition in a new format, with the Volodymyr Lytvyn Bloc joining us in the coalition,” the PM said. Yulia Tymoshenko congratulated people’s deputies and leaders of factions on electing the Parliament’s Speaker. “I want to congratulate you on electing the Parliament’s Speaker and on putting an end to the political crisis,” she said.
The Head of Government stressed that the decision had been taken “despite colossal counteraction, we did it contrary to purposeful breaking of all negotiating processes”.
Yulia Tymoshenko called upon the politicians to “change their mind” and work for the welfare of the country but “not to intrigue, byzantine and ruin their own country for the sake of some ephemeral political competitiveness”.
“I am sure that we made a good start on a very significant day – yesterday it was the Day of Saint George the Victorious. So we have all grounds to consider that Ukraine will advance along the logical path and give a result for the people,” the Head of Government said.
