According to an UNIAN correspondent, faction leader Victor Yanukovych claimed this in the chamber of parliament today.

Victor Yanukovych stressed that the faction of the Party of Regions will “support a common sense here, in parliament, and will work constructively”.

At the same time, according to him, the faction will never allow anybody to follow the way of populism.

“The Party of Regions transfers to the opposition. We made this decision, and we stress on this”, he said. This statement provoked applauds of the coalition lawmakers.

At the same time, Victor Yanukovych added: “It is very good that there is somebody to shoulder responsibility, because the country could not keep on working and living under these conditions”.
