Representative of the Party of Regions Anatoly Tolstoukhov claims that if Raisa Bohatyryova accepts the position of the NSDC secretary, she will have to determine with her membership in the party. Tolstoukhov stated on air of the “5 channel” yesterday.

“The political council of the party advised Bohatyryova to refuse from this step, because the party is in the opposition. And this was proposed only to Bohatyryova, and not to the party,” he said.

“This is her choice. If she has made it, then she has to decide on her membership in the party. It is necessary to make a choice,” Tolstoukhov added.

At the same time, answering the question whether this is an ultimatum, Tolstoukhov answered: “Nobody gave any signals, serious people must understand by themselves.”

“If Bohatyryova becomes good secretary of the NSDC, we will be glad. But one can’t play football and at the same time play basketball,” he said.

Tolstoukhov has also expressed his opposition, that if President Viktor Yushchenko is interested in cooperation with the Party of Regions and in realization of the thesis that Ukraine must be united, then the talk must be held with leader of the party Viktor Yanukovych.

As earlier reported, on December 24 President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko signed a decree on appointment of Raisa Bohatyryova to the position of the secretary of the NationalSecurity and Defense Council.
