Lutsenko will destroy party plans of Yushchenko?

New political force of Yuriy Lutsenko will create a threat to Our Ukraine and its plans of creation of single propresidential party. Political scientist Volodymyr Fesenko said that today in an interview with ForUm’s correspondent.

According to him, discussions on perspectives of independent development and creation of own party were held in People’s Self-Defense before last elections. “That time the choice was made in favour of creation of joint bloc with Our Ukraine,” he said.

 
Fesenko considers that now when there are crisis tendencies in OU-PSD bloc, Lutsenko and his people came to conclusion that it is more logic to create own independent force. “Last years the very Our Ukraine was some third link, the third angle in triangle of power in parliamentary deal. Lutsenko is likely wants to change Our Ukraine,” he explained.
 
As a reminder, Lutsenko intends to create the third powerful political party.

Civil movement “People’s Self-Defense” plans to hold Ukrainian conference in late spring where it may announce about formation of new political party. Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko said that today in an interview, the ForUm’s correspondent informs.

According to Lutsenko, before holding the conference, he plans to visit all regions of Ukraine.

Lutsenko is convinced that today two-party system prevails in Ukraine: on the one hand – BYuT, on the other – Party of Regions. That’s why there is necessity to form the third powerful political force.

According to Lutsenko, this third force may be formed on base of “People’s Self-Defense”. This third force will be a ground for everybody who believes in ideals of Orange revolution.

At the same time, Lutsenko noted that there will be also place for representatives of Our Ukraine and other democratic forces in this party. “I would like to see “Our Ukrainians” who do not have trace of business interests and betrayal. I would also like to see Vitaliy Klychko in this force. Doors are also opened for those politicians who feel uncomfortable in BYuT or Party of Regions,” Lutsenko said.

Lutsenko assured that in case of formation of the third powerful political force, it will not be an alternative for BYuT or Our Ukraine. We will be partners, but this force is necessary as critic and restrictor of some leader actions which were, are and will be in existing parties.

People’s deputy from Party of Regions Mykhaylo Chechetov considers that dirty provocation against peacekeeping contingent in Kosovo was organized by heads of NATO. He said that today during the online-press conference on ForUm.

“In Kosovo where more than 20 our soldiers were wounded, under head of NATO dirty provocation was organized with the purpose to set two brotherly Slavonic peoples, Ukrainian and Serbian, with loggerheads. On the other hand, that provocation free hands of NATO soldiers to strengthen their presence in Kosovo and to locate their military bases,’ Chechetov said.

According to him, Ukrainians were forced to be at war in Kosovo because the power could not manage to provide them with opportunity to work successfully in Ukraine. They were forced to look for another source of earnings. Today interests of the USA and NATO are being defended but not Ukrainian ones,” he said.
