Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Koshulynskyi deems presence of Maidan representatives in the coalition Government to be one of the key principles of its formation

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Koshulynskyi deems presence of Maidan representatives in the coalition Government to be one of the key principles of its formation.

On Tuesday, during the meeting with the Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet, Ruslan Koshulynskyi informed him of the current political situation in Ukraine and the short-term plans of work of the Parliament.  

Ruslan Koshulynskyi noted that this is predetermined by the necessity to consider the standing of Maidan representatives, who, according to him, “are the leaders of public opinion”. He noted that these people “did not hold public posts, but possess a great moral authority in the society.” “They have to decide, whether they are ready to hold the proposed positions when the streets calm,” added the Deputy Chairman of the Parliament. 

Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada claimed that peace in the country will depend on joint actions of the Government and the parliamentary coalition. “People did not have the possibility to control the authorities before now,” he said, and added that “as soon as they feel their control over the situation in the country, they will come back home.”    

Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada characterized the situation in the country a controlled one, “except for the city of Sevastopol.”

Ruslan Koshulynskyi named the economic situation in Ukraine a “catastrophic one”, having characterized its state as a pre-default. He claimed that establishment of a new Government and attraction of IMF financial resources will allow alleviate social tension and “reload the mechanism of state government.”  

Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada noted that elections of the Head of the state, Kyiv city mayor and Kyiv City Council scheduled for May, 2014 this year, will be the first steps on the way to reloading the authority.

Thereat, Ruslan Koshulynskyi said it would be inexpedient to hold early parliamentary elections in view of lack of legal grounds for that. He stressed also that simultaneous holding of presidential and parliamentary elections “will totally block actions of the authority.” “We should demonstrate new changes and new quality to the society, and people should feel this,” he stressed. 

In his turn, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Estonian Republic noted that the citizens of his country support democratic development of Ukraine and “lend their willing hand during this hard period.”
