As it became known, Vadim Merikov declared the exit from IN "Batkivshchyna". We asked to comment on this situation the chairman of BYuT fraction in city council Oleg Mudrak. Oleg Ivanovich told us the following.
- It was Vadim Ivanovich's personal decision. Last night there was a meeting of fraction and we were informed of it. To decide something, and I won't argue - as to me was told, so I and speak. Vadim Ivanovich rather independent and self-sufficient person to make similar decisions. I asked it only one question: this weighed decision? He answered: "Yes, this weighed decision". We accepted it. Frustration certainly is present. Here are added both the personal relations, and party. Vadim very active member of fraction, on many questions helped. But if it made such decision, means it has internal arguments.
Concerning, whether BYuT fraction will insist on Vadim Merikov's deprivation of the deputy mandate, Oleg Mudrak told that this question wasn't discussed.
