The OU-PSD faction will not enter the chamber of the Verkhovna Rada and will not take part in parliamentary sessions today and tomorrow.

OU-PSD lawmaker Kseniya Lyapina disclosed this to an UNIAN correspondent.

According to her words, the faction made this decision at its meeting in the morning.

She noted: "We will wait for 10 days that we gave to BYuT to make a decision: either they return to the coalition agreement or not, because the decision is up to them".

According to the words of K.Lyapina, BYuT will not succeed in shifting the responsibility for splitting the coalition to OU-PSD.

K.Lyapina said that, at the same time, a number of OU-PSD faction parliament members, nevertheless, registered as present in the session hall. According to her words, in particular, they are members of the People's Self Defense group, who "have a separate position".
