Verkhovna Rada Chairman Volodymyr Lytvyn announced about renaming of the BYuT faction into the Yulia Tymoshenko Bloc - Batkivshchyna (Motherland), the Speaker told the Parliament's morning session, UKRINFORM reports.

This decision was taken at the faction's meeting on September 6.

The oppositional faction BYuT is the second large faction following the pro-power Party of Regions.
