The BYT-Batkivschyna faction in parliament has expelled MP Natalia Korolevska from its ranks. A source in the faction said on Wednesday that Korolevska had been expelled from the faction for refusing to vote for the inclusion in the agenda of a draft resolution on measures to implement the recommendations and requirements of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

The faction also made a warning to MP Yevhen Suslov, because he also did not vote for the inclusion of the issue in the agenda, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

In her turn, MP Natalia Korolevska says she was set up: her card disappeared and she could not vote on March 13. "They first planned and then realized the sabotage," she described her yesterday's vote on PACE, according to UKRINFORM.

She said she had asked the Parliament's secretariat for a duplicate card and wrote a formal statement so that her vote "on putting the PACE resolution on the agenda of the session be considered positive."

Korolevska explained that her card was stolen, and the card of Yevhen Suslov did not work. "Yesterday's vote on PACE was a sham excuse that was used today as one of the reasons for my expulsion from BYuT-Batkivshchyna," Korolevska said.

She also believes that the decision to expel her from the faction was not coordinated with Yulia Tymoshenko. "They use every method to discredit me in her eyes," the MP said.
