“Yatseniuk and Poroshenko are not opponents. They, in fact, are in the same camp. Instead of being a counterbalance to each other they have conspired to divide the cash flows they use for enrichment,” lawmaker, ex-investigating journalist and young reformer Serhy Leshchenko writes in Facebook March 6.
“As premier, Yatseniuk is responsible for reform. After two years in office, Yatseniuk is trying to pass the buck to anyone who comes his way,” the lawmaker writes.
Even if the present coalition survives, it is doomed to failure because it is based on corruption, not on European values. Even if the cabinet remains, Ukrainian should get ready for plan B – early elections, Leshchenko says.
However, without a new election law banning majority constituencies, vote-buying, frenzied advertising on TV and lawmaker immunity, there is no chance to succeed, S. Leshchenko says.
