The introduction of administrative reforms by the Party of Regions is only the first step through which the authorities are trying to get rid of their "politically unreliable" partners in the executive branch, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

"They so loudly announced that they’re reducing the number of government officials and are now getting rid of all the senior officials who are not from the Party of Regions; this concerns not only the opposition, but also members of the coalition. I think that you have already noticed that representatives of Lytvyn, the communist party and other political forces have disappeared from the government. There is an on-going political cleanup in the government under the slogan of administrative reform," Yulia Tymoshenko told journalists at the Verkhovna Rada.

The leader of the Batkivshchyna party says the pro-regime Party of Regions is "cleaning out" the political field in order to obtain a complete monopoly over power and make exercising public control over their actions impossible.

"A powerful force system is being created that will replace civil society. If money is given to power structures and administrative resources and taken away from civil society and local government, as is the case with this budget, then, of course, this leads to a bias towards authoritarianism and governing through the use of force," Yulia Tymoshenko said.
