At the same time, A.Portnov noted he does not refuse his criticism of activities of the Ukrainian President. “I will not give up my beliefs for any posts”, he said.

The BYuT faction will press that the parliament vote for dismissal of V.Semenyuk-Samsonenko namely today, he said.

Asked whether another candidacy was already chosen for the post of the SPFU chief, the MP said this is a question to the Prime Minister of Ukraine.
