The Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko faction Sergey Leshchenko accused Arsen Avakov of preparing a coup. He stated this on the air of the ZIK TV channel.
“Arsen Avakov’s team prepares for any scenario, including the seizure of power. The Minister of Internal Affairs is preparing to become the Prime Minister,” noted Leshchenko.
According to him, the Ukrainian government already now doesn’t make decisions without the approval of Avakov, who also controls the ministers from “People’s Front”.
He added that a “semi-criminal group” ready for direct action was formed around Avakov, which includes officials who have a criminal record.
The rating of the head of State has been falling already for a long time. According to an opinion poll, at presidential elections he can count on only 12% of votes. The most popular politician now in Ukraine is Yulia Tymoshenko, for who 15% of residents of the country are ready to vote. In addition, last week it became known that a number of factions in the Verkhovna Rada plan to start the procedure of impeachment of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
The Interior Minister of Ukraine Avakov is one of the party leaders of “People’s Front”, on the basis of which a coalition was formed in parliament. A number of factions repeatedly brought up the question of his resignation. In parliament the corresponding draft bill was registered, however the Rada still hasn’t considered this document.
