"The rupture of the coalition has consequences - the law on changes to the state budget failed. This is natural: who will vote for unpopular decisions preparing to the new elections? Only the Russian Federation State Duma won from that greeting the decision with applause. History will not forgive us. But I believe that our country will overcome these difficulties. It is unacceptable that the decision was not made today. What are the government's options in this situation? The first one: The Prime Minister may start the process of forming a new coalition. But in this case the Party of Regions and the Communists Party need to be included in the coalition. I will never do this. The Second option is that the Government resigns. I do not see any other way. That's why I announce resignation," Yatsenyuk said.
