Leader of the People's Party Volodymyr Lytvyn has refuted reports in Ukrainian media that last week he allegedly announced to the chairmen of the party's regional organizations that the People's Party was joining the Regions Party and he would become deputy chairman of the Regions Party. At the same time, Lytvyn said that the parties were holding consultations on the issue. "The fact that such consultations are taking place is obvious. The rest of the information is absolutely not true," he said in an interview aired by Ukrainian television's Channel 5 on the evening of Sept. 28.

Lytvyn said he thought the reports were aimed at disturbing members of the People's Party. He also said that the state could benefit from the tempering of the Regions Party with the help of other political forces.

"Let's face reality. The Regions Party is a reality of our political life, a long-term reality. The development of Ukraine will depend on this reality. Everyone wants the Regions Party to reflect the positions of the whole of Ukrainian society. If we're talking about unification with the Regions Party, the People's Party, which is the third largest in terms of membership after the Regions Party and the BYT, would benefit from it. If we become closer to the people, moderate the Regions Party – the country will benefit from it," Lytvyn said.

The Party of Regions realizes that the upcoming elections are threatening their hold on power and they must start maneuvering into position by accommodating Lytvyn and the People's Party. Lytvyn, just like the other politicians only concern is power and looking out for himself. It's not about the country benefiting but about Lytvyn benefiting from such a move and being name deputy chairman of the Regions Party. The reason the Party of Regions is a part of the Ukrainian political life is that it is run by the oligarch of Ukraine and money is no problem. They can spend a large amount in getting their puppets elected but they will make up all that spending by corruption and fraud (stealing Ukraine's resources). Lytvyn reminds me of another Traitor who is now with the Party of Regions and I do not even have to mention his name for people to know who that individual is. The Party of Regions is buying its way into power and will resort to stealing the elections just like they tried to do in 2004. They committed a crime by falsely trying to steal the elections and they were never punish for their crime.
