(Itar-Tass) - A parliamentary coalition comprising the Bloc of Yulia Timoshenko, Our Ukraine and the Socialist Party has been formed in Ukraine, Timoshenko said in the parliament on Wednesday.

Representatives of the troika solved the issues of the distribution of posts, which were a stumbling block in forming the orange coalition, at a meeting with President Viktor Yushchenko on Tuesday evening, reports Trend.

Yevgeny Kushnarev of the Party of Regions led by ex-prime ministry Viktor Yanukovich said that the party would begin setting up an anti- crisis coalition and urge for the election of the parliaments leadership unless the orange coalition was officially sealed on Wednesday.
