The deputy also said some MPs wish to leave the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction. Firsov has not provided names, saying the number totals to about five or 10 persons.

According to Firsov, many members of the faction are clearly discontented with conduct of Prime Minister Arsenii Yatseniuk.

"There are no reforms, no development strategy, which could be clear and understandable for deputies and citizens," Firsov announced, noting that the budget -2016 draft has not yet been introduced in the parliament.
