Leader of the Front for Change Party Arseniy Yatseniuk has stated that the unification of the opposition could lay a serious foundation for the creation of a single party. "Speaking about our unification, this unification is confirmed by the fact that deputies from the Batkivschyna political party will join the Front for Change public organization. I think this is a good example of a real and true unification. Actually, this is the first step towards serious negotiations on the formation of a single [approach]," Yatseniuk said at a press conference on Monday, Apr. 23.

The politician said that while forming a single list of candidates for deputies on the basis of the Batkivschyna Party, candidates from the Front for Change Party will have to fulfill "technical formalities" to join the party list of Batkivschyna.

Yatseniuk promised that all of the necessary procedures for the formation of a single list would be carried out.
