The shadow government has said that a Constitutional Court ruling on the legitimacy of the formation of a new parliamentary coalition is cynical, hypocritical and illegal. "I remember no ruling by the Constitutional Court and even by a court of first instance, which was taken with such cynical hypocrisy," Minister of the shadow Cabinet of Ministers and Our Ukraine-People's Self-Defense MP Roman Zvarych said at a briefing on Thursday while commenting on the court's decision.

He said that the new ruling clearly contradicted a previous one adopted by the Constitutional Court.

Zvarych said that judges understood the illegality of such a ruling.

"I'm convinced that each of the 11 justices [who supported the ruling] understood that they had taken a deliberately unlawful decision," he said.
