on social media

Due to internal parliament rules, a no-confidence vote can only be held once per session. The next vote cannot take place earlier than February 2014, leaving the country’s political situation in turmoil until then.

Notably, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, Deputy Prime Minister Yuriy Boiko and Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara were present for the vote, along with many of the other cabinet members.

Just 186 deputies voted for the motion, short of the required 226. Five members of parliament voted against the bill, with 12 abstaining and 135 choosing not to vote at all.
