 Yatsenyuk: Our Demands are not Met. And These are Demands of Millions of Ukrainians. VIDEO

The opposition deputies surrounded the parliamentary rostrum during a speech of Batkivschyna faction leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

As Rada TV channel reports Yatsenyuk said that the opposition does not care who will head the National Bank, as "it will still be Yanukovych."

The opposition leader demanded that parliament confirm the European vector of Ukraine, and to vote for the bill on the decriminalization of several articles of the Criminal Code under which Yulia Tymoshenko and Yurii Lutsenko were sentenced.

"We demand that the agenda include the law on amnesty proposed by the three opposition factions which frees Yulia Tymoshenko and Yurii Lutsenko from political persecution and thousands of Ukrainians still suffering from illegal prosecution," said the chairman of Batkivschyna faction.

Yatsenyuk also stressed that Rada-3 system which does not allow the deputies to vote for someone else is still not on: "We continue to insist to abide the basic constitutional provision - namely, personal voting."

"The opposition's demands are the demands of millions of Ukrainians who voted for us. We want our demands to be met. Include our bills in the agenda and then the parliament will work. It will not work in any another way," said Yatsenyuk.

During the speech of the chairman of Batkivschyna faction the opposition deputies blocked the rostrum. The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada was forced to announce a break, however, the opposition stayed near the podium.
