The defectors who left the BYuT team were seduced by the power of authority and the material benefits it offered, believes Yulia Tymoshenko, the leader of the united democratic opposition.

"Individuals defectors have left our ranks. They converted the other team’s authority into their own dubious personal achievements – material or career-related," Yulia Tymoshenko said in an interview with the magazine Korrespondent, the official website reports.

She noted that members of parliament are being offered $5 million to join the parliamentary coalition. "This is a natural choice. Can you imagine that our deputies, many of whom never saw $50,000 at once in their life, are now being offered $5 million? Young professionals are being offered high-level position," she said.

She noted that 150 people remain in the parliamentary opposition team – true fighters as she calls them, who are "ready to take a blow."
