The Civil Position party has joined the united opposition of Ukraine, which includes the Batkivschyna all-Ukrainian Union, the Front for Change and several other political parties.

 "We want to inform the Ukrainian public that at present the united opposition will counter the aggression of the authorities," First Deputy Leader of the Batkivschyna Party Oleksandr Turchynov said at a press conference on Wednesday.

"Today, we want to tell you of our decision to merge with the Civil Position political party, which is lead by Anatoly Hrytsenko," he added.

Hrytsenko, in turn, said that the political forces had held talks and "took the correct and responsible decision."

He said that on June 15 they had signed a document about Civil Position's entering the united opposition.

This is a very positive step. It is boiling down to yanusvoloch and his mafia bulldozer versus an opposition that has realized that democracy must be implemented in Ukraine - without corruption.

The moniker Громадянська Позиція should more accurately be translation as Position of the Populace.

But be that as it may, their press conference at which Yatseniuk, Turchynov and Hrytsenko made the announcement - and openly showed the written agreement of unification - is a hugely positive step.

Furthermore, they do not exclude working together with civil groups like Чесно - Honestly - and with other opposition organizations to remove yanusvoloch and his mafia.

This is a big step, and a very positive step.

Like her or not, it doesn't matter - Tymoshenko's predictions and warnings about yanusvoloch during the last presidential elections were exactly on point.

In order to get rid of sovok mafia dinosaurs, in order for Ukraine to impelement democracy, in order for Ukraine to come into the 21st century - yanusvoloch and his sovok mafia banda must go.

elmer this is a breach of election law-parties must stand alone. Given this i see no other course other than election commission disqualifies these parties from upcoming election.

There is no breach. All that remains to be decided is the formal name of this group of Parties.
