You're reading: Young opposition activists stage rally to celebrate resignation of Azarov’s government

About 30 members of youth organizations of the opposition parties - the Batkivschyna, the Front for Change, the Popular Rukh and the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union - staged a rally outside the building of the government on the occasion of the resignation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

The rally participants told an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent that
this government was a disgrace, and that it contributed to the
destruction of the economy and the curtailing freedom of speech. They
also referred to the government lead by Premier Mykola Azarov as a
“government of political pensioners.”

The rally participants brought with them three caricatures – of Prime
Minister Mykola Azarov, Education, Science, Youth and Sports Minister
Dmytro Tabachnyk and Deputy Prime Minister – Social Policy Minister
Sergiy Tigipko. They launched them into the sky using white balloons,
“so that they could not taken seats in the government again.”

As reported, on December 3, 2012 Ukrainian President Viktor
Yanukovych accepted the resignation of the premier and the entire
Cabinet of Ministers. With the same decree he instructed the government
to keep carrying out its duties until a new one is formed.

Azarov and seven more members of the government led by him were
elected as people’s deputies at the parliamentary elections on October
28, 2012.
