The Ukraine-Forward! Party will not cooperate with the Regions Party in a new parliament, but it is ready to unite with political parties sharing the principles of this opposition group. "Our party is now teaming up with non-governmental organizations and public leaders. We will definitely not work with the Regions Party in the next parliament," the party leader, Natalia Korolevska, said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.

She said that such a decision had been made by the political council of the Ukraine-Forward! Party.

"We will unite with all democratic forces that conduct a competitive struggle, that gain the trust of voters and that are represented in the Ukrainian parliament," she said.
