President Petro Poroshenko refused to comment on the emergency Cabinet meeting, which was held on Thursday 4 February.
He said this to journalists, after meeting with investigators of the National anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine, transfers «Ukrainian truth».
On the question that there is a feeling that Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk «beat» the President, Poroshenko said:
«When it comes to the fate of the country, there is no place for games, necessary effective action. Soon you will see some effective action».
Question about Igor Kononenko and the investigation to NAB the President has left unanswered.
We will remind, the Minister of economic development and trade of Ukraine aivaras abromavicius said on 3 February that leaves from a post. As the reasons for its decision Abromavicius called the conflict with the Deputy head of the faction PPO Igor Kononenko, whom journalists called the «envoys» or «purse» of the President. The next day held an emergency Cabinet meeting, at which four Ministers withdrew their resignation. However, Abromavicius said that is not going to change his decision about leaving the Cabinet.
The evening of February 4, the Cabinet met in an extraordinary meeting. At the meeting of the four Ministers said they are ready to withdraw the resignation. The Minister of agrarian policy and food of Ukraine Oleksiy Pavlenko, the Minister of information policy Yury stets, as well as the head of Ministry of health Alexander Kvitashvili said that withdrawing my resignation. While Abromavicius to withdraw his application refused.
Before that, acting Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Petro Poroshenko and the speaker of Parliament Vladimir Groisman met with the ambassadors of the participating countries of the G7 called on Ukrainian leaders to avoid the «Moldovan version», to preserve the unity and dispositive power, and to stay the course of reforms.
Acute government crisis caused by the desire of all members of the ruling parliamentary coalition «European Ukraine» parties (except the Prime Minister’s «people’s front») update the personal composition of the Cabinet of Ministers.
As stated by the head of fraction «Blok Petro Poroshenko», the MP Yuri Lutsenko, there are two ways out of this situation: a complete change of government after the early elections to the Verkhovna Rada (in the interests of «Samopomich», «Batkivshchyna» and Radical party) and partial «reformatting» of the government in a targeted manner (supported PPB).
More re-election not interested «popular front», has already declared that their conduct would play «into the hands of the Kremlin.» According to sociologists, the rating of trust of voters to «NF» may prevent the party of Yatsenyuk to overcome the 5% barrier necessary for hit in Parliament.
Moreover, in recent local elections the party «national front» was not involved, supporting the candidate from «Blok Petro Poroshenko».
Poroshenko has not commented on the altercation in the Cabinet, but has announced «a few effective actions» 09.02.2016
