«The PPO and «popular front» may be difficult to relate to each other, to fight and say nasty things, but they are in the same boat. They are not part, because it is very bad not only for themselves but for the country. A special election will lead to much worse results than now. I’m talking from the point of view of the quality of the coalition and the government. Moreover, I do not believe that all will be able to form a coalition government, because the Parliament will be many small factions. Therefore now all hope is only that the current coalition will last as long as possible to managed to stabilize economic situation in the country,» said Volokh.

At the moment, based on sociology, good prospects Hrytsenko (ex-Minister of defence of Ukraine Anatoly Gritsenko. – «GORDON»). He’s the one who strengthens its position. Today I see it as a more or less sensible alternative to the current government. But that Tymoshenko is losing ago,» said Volokh.
