Election of Poroshenko as President was a mistake - Lyashko

According to Lyashko, election of Poroshenko as the President of Ukraine was a mistake that cost the Ukrainian people a lot, Joinfo.ua reports.

"Exactly one year ago, Petro Poroshenko became the President. Of course, it was a mistake of the Ukrainian people. The biggest mistake since the Revolution of Dignity. The error that cost us too much," Lyashko wrote on his Facebook page.

Lyashko believes that Poroshenko is the one to blame for thousands of victims, for de facto lost Donbas, for the fact that the ATO was stopped at the time when "it was possible to free Donetsk and Luhansk," for traps near Ilovaisk and Debaltseve, for total corruption and other horrors of the Ukrainian life.

The politician also chided the President for not selling his business, and for failing to fulfill more than 2/3 of his promises. "The worst thing is that in the result of all the above mentioned, first of all, poverty millions of people live in, the gang of regional teams can take revenge on the next elections," said Lyashko.

However, the MP said that his faction would not leave the coalition "for the sake of Ukraine."
