At his press conference in Korosten, Zhytomyr region on Tuesday, President Yushchenko said that Prime Minister’s request for dismissal of Defense Minister Yuriy Yekhanurov was dictated by the wish to disrupt proper functioning of executive branch in order to concentrate executive power in one hands, according to president's press office.
He said that such practice is dangerous for state authorities system because collective nature of the cabinet is destroyed with professionalism and rapidness of the Cabinet suffering.
Also Victor Yushchenko stressed that he familiarized himself with the report on the results of checkups in Defense Ministry and does not see any grounds for accusing the Minister of corruption. “There is nothing more here but politics”, - he said, adding also that he will not address the parliament with the request for Yuriy Yekhanurov's dismissal from the office.
