 "Batkivshchyna has been doing its best to destabilize situation in the state for a long time," - People's Front

Batkivshchyna parliamentary faction de facto withdrew from the "European Ukraine" coalition long time ago, so today's announcement of party leader Yuliia Tymoshenko and her teammates is another evidence of irresponsible populism.

This was announced by the People's Front parliamentary faction in a statement, Censor.NET informs.

"After the scandalous resignation of Ecology Minister Shevchenko, who had been delegated to the government by Batkivshchyna, the faction in fact became opposition, acting along with the Opposition Bloc. It is worth reminding that Miniter Shevchenko was accused of nexus with gas oligarch and former Regional Party member Onyshchenko.

"Deputies from Batkivshchyna haven't fulfilled a single provision of the coalition agreement, to which they were a signatory. The faction sabotaged the operation of the European Ukraine coalition.

"It's been a long time since Batkivshchyna stopped voting for coalition-filed and coalition government-created bills. At the same time, it took them a while to announce publicly that they are no longer a part of the coalition.

"Having created the coalition and having its ministers in the government, this faction was doing its best to avoid political responsibility, to achieve early elections, and destabilize the situation in the country.

"Yesterday in the parliament, they did not manage to implement this destructive scenario. This is the reason behind today's announcement by Bakivshchyna about its withdrawal from the coalition. This is just another attempt to achieve its mercantile goals not due to the government's dismissal but through a political crisis.

"People's Front has many times called on its colleagues to sign an addition to the coalition agreement and move together along the reforms track. Batkivshchyna has chosen the conflict scenario: worse is better.

"We would like to stress that all the populists' attempts to make the situation in the country unstable are doomed. The European Ukraine coalition will continue operating for the sake of positive changes in the country. However difficult this task is," the statement reads.
