Leader of the UDAR Party Vitali Klitschko has again said he intends to start discussing a joint action plan with the Batkivschyna United Opposition and the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union.

"Today we're ready to sit down to start signing an agreement on joint work with the opposition," he told the journalists in Kyiv on Monday, Oct. 29.

Klitschko also said that UDAR Party is going to work in the Verkhovna Rada of the seventh convocation with those political forces, who "offer a democratic way for Ukraine’s development", and does not see the possibility for joint work with the Regions Party and the Communist Party of Ukraine.

"We'll make every effort to work jointly with the parties that offer a democratic direction for Ukraine's development, these being the Batkivschyna and Svoboda parties," the politician said.
