“The Verkhovna Rada made attempts to dismiss Anatoli Hrytsenko from the post of the Defense Minister. But the minister’s speech in the parliament was so professional and convincing that even the greatest extremists of the ruling coalition did not dare to arise the question of his dismissal” – the Our Ukraine faction leader Vyacheslav Kyrylenko commented on the PM’s statement that Mr. Hrytsenko had to apologize before the speaker, according to Our Ukraine web site.

“Mr. Hrytsenko continues to work professionally, his statements are always precise and open – he added. – Perhaps, somebody does not like openness of his statements, but it can’t create grounds to dismiss the respected minister”.

“The Our Ukraine party supports Hrytsenko’s activity, he is a public defense minister. It is necessary for European democratic country” – Vyacheslav Kyrylenko noted.
