The Political Council Presidium of the All-Ukrainian Union Batkivschyna has expelled Oleksandr Feldman, a Verkhovna Rada deputy of the Yulia Tymoshenko bloc faction, from the party, Natalia Fedorenko, spokeswoman for Batkivschyna regional organization in Kharkiv, told Ukrainian News.
The decision was made on June 24.
Feldman was expelled for the activity incompatible with membership in the party.
As Ukrainian News reported, the All-Ukrainian Union Batkivschyna relieved Feldman of his post as chairman of the party's Kharkiv regional organization on April 21 and appointed him acting chairman of Kharkiv city organization.
But the people's deputy refused to take up the post.
On May 14, Feldman joined the coalition in the Verkhovna Rada because, as he explained, of disagreement with the party's decision to dismiss him from his duties as leader of Batkivschyna regional organization.
