Members of Ukraine's Party of Regions have blocked the rostrum in the country's parliament Tuesday
Members of Ukraine's Party of Regions have blocked the rostrum in the country's parliament Tuesday in a bid to thwart a session of the Supreme Rada. Viktor Yanukovych's party, which won the largest share of the parliamentary vote, has declared itself in opposition to the Ukrainian authorities and the new parliamentary coalition, which comprises Western-leaning "orange" groups. "They will not let any action take place in parliament," said Yevgeny Kushnarev, a Party of Regions leader. Pro-presidential grouping Our Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko's bloc, and the Socialist Party agreed to form a coalition majority in the Rada June 22, after months of political wrangling following elections in March 26. The new coalition is entitled to appoint the prime minister and most Cabinet members.
