Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman urged recalcitrant Ministers to vote for strategic decisions in the basement of the Cabinet of Ministers. This is on the condition of anonymity, said a member of the government to the edition “Ukrainian truth”.
“These are questions that Poroshenko agree on their “strategicka” (meetings of “strategic nines” — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), where sit the President, the Prime Minister [interior Minister Arsen] Avakov, [former Prime Minister Arseniy] Yatsenyuk and other”, — said the Minister.
He explained that Cabinet members are just being informed about the existence of such solutions in fact, before the government meeting, and they are obliged to vote for him. Those who refused to approve adopted without their knowledge solutions, invited for interview in the basement of the Cabinet of Ministers.
“It is really such as the bunker in the basement of government House. It is used to speak privately. But you can invite the Minister to say that now, friend, we are, and here we have the solution. It can you not like it, but you’ll accept it,” — said an unnamed member of the government Groisman.
As previously wrote “Ukrainian truth”, the so-called “strategic nine” sits in the presidential administration and takes all key decisions in the Ukraine. It includes the President of Petro Poroshenko, former and current Prime Ministers Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Volodymyr Groysman, Minister of internal Affairs Arsen Avakov, the speaker of Parliament Andriy Parubiy, Secretary of the security Council Oleksandr Turchynov and Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko, the head of the presidential administration Igor rainin, and “gray cardinal” of the party “Block of Petro Poroshenko” Igor Kononenko.
