Leader of Our Ukraine-People’s Self-Defense faction Vyacheslav Kirilenko said they could solve a lot of problems establishing the trilateral coalition. He announced terms for signing the coalition deal. According to these terms, BYuT should renounce a joint voting with the Party of Regions and communists, as well as support for draft law restricting president’s authorities and vetoing by President Yushchenko.
