Just a word on the current situation regarding the coalition in the Ukrainian parliament.
On Wednesday Batkivshina withdrew from the coaltion. On Thursday Samopomich did the same thing.
That leaves BPP (Poro block) and NF (Narodni Front - Yats) only. Between them they have 217 votes. They need 226 to pass bills.

There are some smaller parties who might support certain things.
Also, there are 50 non-attached deputies.
Furthermore, Samopomich have said they will support bills they approve of.

Tymoshenko has started counting down the days to the dismissal of the cabinet.
If there is no coalition after 30 days the President "can" dismiss parliament and call elections.
Tymoshenko wants to put pressure on Poroshenko. Tymoshenko wants to be President, so she needs to discredit everybody except herself.

Liashko is reportedly in talks with the coalition - yats and Poro - but whether he will join - I put at 30-70 chance. Likely not.
But his ratings have been falling, and this could give him the chance for more tv coverage which he positively craves. He is an out and out populist.

N.B. There are suggestions that Liashko's Radical Party never "officially" left the coalition, i.e. they never submitted the required documents.
[see about 5 posts' down for more on this]
If true, this could be an interesting development, and may also affect the "30 days" rule after which a President can, according to the consitution, dismiss parliament and call fresh elections - if no functioning coalition-government.
