Batkivshchyna leaves ruling coalition

Tymoshenko-led Batkivshchyna faction in Verkhovna Rada has left the ruling coalition, its leader told journalists Feb. 17.

Yulia Tymoshenko has been increasingly critical of the coalition for the past several months, refusing to support its decisions on a number of occasions. 

Earlier, another small coalition member, the Radical party, also broke its links with the ruling coalition.

As a result, the coalition two major members, Block Petra Poroshenko and Yatseniuk-led People’s Front can muster the simple majority but have to look for the support from other Rada factions when they need a constitutional majority.
