Former President of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma considers that dismissal of Borys Tarasyuk from the post of Foreign Minister of Ukraine will not weaken the position of the President in the system of the power.

“Tarasyuk’s dismissal will not weaken the President’s positions as he can submit more or less agreed candidature of a politician, position of whom does not differ from the position of the government,” Kuchma said.

He is convinced that the position of the government and the parliamentary coalition is weakened by “ministers who do not share the opinion of the ruling coalition.” “Do you think we are respected in the world when a minister can forbid a Prime Minister to pay a working visit to a country? Believe me I never signed any orders concerning Prime Minister’s behaviour,” Kuchma explained.

The ex-president also considers that the United States has invited PM Yanukovych to learn his opinion on events happening in Ukraine. “The President’s opinion they already know,” he pointed out.

The Our Ukraine faction will not allow dismissal of Foreign Minister of Ukraine Borys Tarasyuk. OU member Vyacheslav told ForUm’s correspondent in an interview.

“We will fight for this post due to a number of reasons. The first reason is that we must defend the course of the foreign policy of the President. The second one is that Tarasyuk is a professional, and nobody has ever filed professional complaints against Tarasyuk for the two-year period of his being in office. As for political complaints, they are voiced out all the time,” he underscored.

Kyrylenko noted that it is not the first time the anti-crisis coalition tries to dismiss Tarasyuk knowing the President’s position on this issue.
