In a brief interview for reporters in Astana, Victor Yushchenko said he would appeal against the Verkhovna Rada's “paradoxical and eclectic” resolution to sack the government, presidential press office reported.

“Of course, I will appeal to the Constitutional Court to prove that the voting was unconstitutional,” he said.

The Head of State stressed that the cabinet would continue to perform their duties.

“This cabinet will be working until parliamentary elections,” he said. “I would like to stress that they will not be acting ministers but will work as Prime Minister and ministers. Ukraine’s political and legal situation hasn't changed.”

Yushchenko added that the Verkhovna Rada “did its best to create this chaos in Ukraine by not voting for judges of the Constitutional Court to make the executive and judicial systems uncertain,” but assured all that, as guarantor of the Constitution, he would not tolerate legal nihilism.

The Presidentalso said he would not change his schedule in Kazakhstan. Apart from an inauguration ceremony of Nursultan Nazarbayev, he is scheduled to meet with his colleagues. On January 11, Yushchenko is going to meet with Vladimir Putin.

“After the gas row there are really many questions. We must resume our political, economic, and governmental dialogue,” he said.
