Koalitionsvertrag

Formation of coalition and goverment. Official declaration of the election results is being protracted, claims the chairman of the Central Election Committee Mykhaylo Okhendovskyi, referring to the fact that courts’ decisions on vote recounting in voting precincts in some electoral districts might hamper it. In particular, the reference has been made to the district electoral committees No.79 (center – Vasylivka town in Zaporizhzhya region) and No.198 (center – Smila town in Cherkasy region). According to Okhendovskyi, deputies elected in these districts may embark on work a bit later.

While parliamentary coalition is being formed, president-controlled Security Service of Ukraine is demonstrating the evidence of its efficiency. According to the statement of the head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaychenko, a former head of the Secuty Service Counterintelligence involved with mass shooting of people in Maidan has been detained and arrested in Ukraine.

Scandal in the “Volya” party which entered “Samopomich” union unfolds. Leaders of the party demands that three candidates for people’s deputies (Yehor Sobolyev, Viktoriya Voytsitska and Pavlo Kostenko) who entered the parliament by the “Samopomich Union” party list and refused from reinstating membership in “Volya” party, should turn away their deputy mandates.

The BPP in the person of the head of the campaign headquarters of “Block of Petro Poroshenko” party, Vitaliy Kovalchuk, forecasts the “almost final” version of coalition agreement to be ready by November 14th.

Leader of the “Batkivshchyna” party Yuliya Tymoshenko stated that her party was joining the coalition formation negotiations and called upon signing the agreement as soon as possible, i.e. by November 14th. In Tymoshenko’s opinion, the existing documents would suffice to form the government, so the government formation should not be delayed.

Ukrainian Vice prime-minister Volodymyr Hroysman insists on public commitments of the government and people’s deputies of Ukraine on implementation of reforms, recorded in the coalition agreement. Each clause of the coalition agreement is to have its deadlines and its responsible minister.

Situation in der ATO-Zone in der Ostukraine

Journalists find ‘solid’ Russian ties to missile that hit MH17. After analyzing a massive volume of data from open sources, a team of British investigative journalists has found “solid information” that the Buk missile system that downed Malaysian Airlines flight 17 in July came from Russia, and was sent back there after the disaster. They also traced the Buk’s military convoy back to its base in Russia. “If it is confirmed a Buk missile was used and the launch site is established by the official investigation as being Snizhne (in Donetsk Oblast), it seems clear the launcher came from Russia, and the government bears the responsibility for killing hundreds of innocent civilians on MH17,” says Eliot Higgins, who led the team of investigative journalists.

Tymchuk: Putin considering open aggression, strike groups in Donbas ready to attack. “The fact that the Russians are moving [equipment] to the border, including tactical missile systems, suggests that Putin is considering the option of open aggression against Ukraine , quite obviously, under the guise of ‘protecting the local population’ of the Donbas, who expressed their will in the elections in the Donetsk and Luhansk Peoples’ Republics,” Tymchuk said. “However, this scenario is clearly not the primary one, and these preparation are more likely a ‘safety net,’ which also puts pressure on Kyiv in order to prevent it starting active offensive operations against the terrorists.” He said the militants had completed the formation of tactical strike groups and were preparing for an attack on Ukrainian forces.
