Yanukovich, the leader of the largest opposition party, believes that the problem of “the overall responsibility of the authorities before the Ukrainian nation” should be raised today. Yanukovych has suggested first the resignation of the government, then the dismissal of the president of the National Bank and after that – initiating the impeachment of the president.” “This is the only procedure that the Party of Regions will support,” he said. “The demand to dismiss the head of the National Bank is the policy of Tymoshenko, who wishes to show that someone else, and not the government, is to blame for the current situation. We understand it only too well. This is why the resignation of the government is the first thing to achieve,” Yanukovych said. In his opinion, the resignation of the cabinet of ministers should take place after the holding of pre-term parliamentary elections.
