 Parliament will not Commence Work While There is Blatant Attack on Freedom, Turchynov. VIDEO

Head of the political council of the United Opposition Oleksandr Turchynov told reporters that the opposition will probably remain in the Parliament for the night.

"If we see that there is a threat of our opponents trying to unlock the Parliament at night, of course we will stay for the night. But we are not afraid, if the Regions block the Parliament. Because in doing so they will support our claims regarding stopping dangerous processes in Ukraine. On the contrary, they want to show stability in the Parliament. But the highest legislative body in the country cannot work steadily when the Constitution is collapsing, people's rights are being thrown out the window, and political leaders are thrown in jail," he said.

According to Turchynov, the Parliament can start work any day, even today, if they stop attacking the rights of the opposition and citizens, Cesnor.NET correspondent reports.

"If the Party of Regions joins the blocking, that's their problem. This will be their desperate gesture which will lead to nothing. Let them block, we will block again."

According to him, the Parliament cannot work in an environment where the political prisoners are harassed and the mandates are revoked by the decision of the Presidential Administration.

"We do not care whether or not they will try unlocking by force. The Parliament will not work while there is a blatant attack on freedom. They do not even attempt to unlock, because it does not benefit them."
