The parliamentary coalition could expand to 260 MPs, Verkhovna Rada Chairman Volodymyr Lytvyn has said. "I think that the coalition will number around 260 MPs by the middle of the next month," he said on Channel 5 on Thursday evening.

As reported, Lytvyn read out Our Ukraine-People's Self-Defense Bloc MP Oleksandr Bobyliov's statement on joining the coalition at a parliament meeting on April 1. Bobyliov became the 240th member of the coalition.

Another piece of scum has defected to join the criminals in power. Ukrainian people are paying handsomely to buy judges, police chiefs and we all know that politicians in Ukraine are the easiest to buy. Self- Prostitution is the entry qualification for these people. A pathetic bunch of so-called humans who will take back Ukraine 50 years

Ths a sign peole are dissilusioned by julia and Yusenka, and see no hope sticking around a disintegrating corroding junk yard of fake political ideals.

It is wrong to accuse those who are switching to the prominent coalition as bribed individuals.

More than half of Ukraine voted against Julia and Yusenko,,,

Were they also bribed?

That assumption has no merits.

While the west had some great benefits in mind for the Ukranian populance when they had financed the orange coup, it was intrusted to those who had no feeling and care for the common citizenry of Ukraine, and used their position indiscriminately to obtain personnal wealth and dominion.

Today, no one needs to get paid to leave these camps of arrogant fallen selfish leaders,,,people only need opportunity and they will leave,, to find hope, sanity and future...

Don't we all do the same in our business lives?....

Move on to profitable things, when there s nothng left but to go down, or go forward?

It is not a crime, it is the way of survival,,,

Politicians do not live to serve a leader once the leader is rejected and becomes an ordinary citizen,,, Politicians will move on to find usefullness of their talents and services where it is needed,,,

Yulia and Yusenka was financed and aided by the West, and once this assistance was withdrawn, these two selfish greedy confrontational characters' support had collapsed,,,politically and nation wide,,, as if it wasn't even there ,,, ever...

The future is not once upon,,,, it is living in the present for the future,,,,

Julia and Yusenko never offered any future to Ukrainians, only to themselves through chaos and divisions,,,,

That era had ended, and no more orange tent invasion is on the horison,,, so deputies will run fast to secure their political futures, before they would become like their leaders,, Julia and Yusenka,,,, irrelevant,,,,,,
