Communists are sure that wide coalition will not solve all problems

People’s deputy candidate from the Communist party of Ukraine Serhiy Hmyrya considers that there is no sense to form the wide coalition because it will not solve all exciting problems. He made such statement on Friday.

According to Hmyrya, the formation of the wide coalition as the necessity to unite Ukraine will only deepen the exciting conflict situation, especially questions on Ukraine’s joining the NATO and the Russian language status as the second State language.

“To form such coalition means to postpone the solution of these questions, and to bring the problem in a deadlock,” he said.

Hmyrya is sure that the formation of the wide coalition will lead Ukraine to a collapse, but not to a consolidation.
