The oppositional parties and non-governmental organizations have united into a committee for resistance to dictatorship in Ukraine, member of the Block of Yulia Tymoshenko (BYT)-Batkivschyna faction Serhiy Sobolev has said. "Repressions against statesmen, arrests of leaders of opposition parties have become the means of doing away with political opponents of the ruling regime, an attempt to establish dictatorship in Ukraine," Sobolev quoted a letter signed by Ukrainian opposition parties' leaders on Monday.

Apart from the political parties in the Verkhovna Rada, the document was signed by the parties not seats in parliament, he said.

According to the MP, the statement was signed by leaders of the European Party of Ukraine, Defendants of the Fatherland party, People's Self-Defense, Batkivschyna, Reforms and Order party, Civil Position, Our Ukraine, Popular Ruh of Ukraine, and the Front for Changes party.
