«For the first time each fraction is expressed whether it is ready to work with this government. Based on the answers (the answers were predictable) or the faction «Batkivshchyna», nor the faction «Samopomich» with this Prime Minister will not work», — said Sobolev told reporters after meeting the heads of the coalition factions with the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Groisman and Yatsenyuk on Friday in Parliament.
The MP said: «it is Clear that the popular front said that they will work with this Prime Minister, and the «Block of Petro Poroshenko» (fraction «Block of Petro Poroshenko» – ed.) requires reformatting of the government».
