 Symonenko Outraged with Work of Azarov He Recently Voted for and Threatens Resignation

Faction of the Communist Party of Ukraine demands to immediately provide to the Verkhovna Rada the program of action of the Government in accordance with the Constitution and the law on the Cabinet of Ministers.

Head of the faction Petro Symonenko stated: "In the case the program of Action of the Cabinet will not be made public before the end of the month, the faction of the Communist Party of Ukraine will take the initiative to consider the responsibility of the Government to the Parliament, and by the end of this review, it may raise the question of confidence to the Cabinet of Azarov."

Petro Symonenko is outraged that after 1.5 months from the start of the new Azarov government neither the deputies nor the public have seen the program of action of the Cabinet.

"The objectives, priorities, key objectives of the country's development which must implemented by the government are absolutely unclear. And if there is no such program, it is not clear who is responsible for its implementation, who will be responsible for the results. After all, how does the Party of Regions and personally Azarov plan to fulfill their lavish campaign promises," he said.

Communist Party leader also recalled some of this problems that in his opinion the government is "trying to solve in the manual mode."

"We are witnessing adventurous projects, such as the signing of the contract for the construction of LNG-terminal with a ski instructor, questionable agreement with Shell Corporation on shale gas, which if allowed will lead the country to an ecological disaster. We see a very scandalous situation to procurement of medicines due to lack of import licensing system," he said.

In addition, according to Symonenko, there remains an acute problem with the payment of salary arrears.

He noted that if the program of the Cabinet on the urgent measures is not immediately considered and approved, the situation will become critical, moreover, the work of the Verkhovna Rada "will turn into complete chaos, as it will be considering and adopting not target and program bills but taken out of context and illogical laws of financial clans and groups."

"Everybody knows that the Communists played a key role in approving Azarov. Our goal was for the state to systematically and without delay begin addressing the existing problems. Prime Minister Azarov personally promised us the systematic resolving of a number of important countries for socio-economic issues. But by voting, we just talked about the fact that if in the near future we do not see systematic, consistent and planned actions, the Communists will raise the issue of confidence in the government," said Petro Symonenko.
