“Yesterday, extraordinary events took place at the Parliament, when things that were kept in secret came to light. Today, parliamentary faction of Batkivshchyna party decided to make the only possible step – a step to leaver the coalition”, Yulia Tymoshenko said at the morning briefing on Wednesday.  

As 112 International reported, on February 16, Ukraine’s Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, failed to disband Yatsenyuk’s government. The respective resolution didn’t get enough votes of the MPs; however, the Parliament admitted that the government’s actions in 2015 were unsatisfactory.  

Prime Minister Yatsenyuk held a speech at the Parliament, reporting on the government’s activity throughout the last year. After that, heads of parliamentary factions and leaders of parliamentary committees heavily criticized the Premier and his ministers. Soon after Yatsenyuk started his speech, 150 votes were collected in the Parliament to support the vote of censure. The document didn’t get enough votes.
