Presidential candidate and leader of the Socialist Party of Ukraine Oleksandr Moroz has said that in 2006 he was responsible for the formation of the anti crisis coalition with the Regions Party and the Communist party and, according to him, this was the only possible way to save Ukraine from chaos, lawlessness, and economic recession.
He said this at a press conference in Uman, the press service of the Socialist Party reported on Nov. 30.
"I'm not ashamed but proud of the fact that I managed to halt the crisis of power. The economy operated normal and, the parliament adopted 80% of the laws [it considered] by a constitutional majority of votes. We were close to the decentralization of power. That's why Tymoshenko and Yuschenko's supporters forced the president to dismiss the parliament and remove me and my political forces illegally," the politician said.
"But today people see who is who, [and] that's why 40% of citizens do not trust the authorities. I expect their support," Moroz said.
