Ukraine's legislature, the Verkhovna Rada, has turned down the resignation Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk submitted earlier in July.

Yatsenyuk announced he was stepping down last week after the governing coalition collapsed due to the decision of two of its parties, UDAR and Svoboda, to quit.

During its session on Thursday the Ukrainian Parliament also passed budget amendments proposed by the cabinet, which envisage an increase in military expenditures.

Lawmakers rejected the resignation by a majority of 16-311, according to Ukraine's news agency UNIAN.

The interim government took over in February, after the Rada voted to declare President Viktor Yanukovych illegitimate amid unrest in the streets of Kiev.

Political leaders then agreed that early general elections should be held in the months to come, though a date was not specified.

The EU is playing a DANGEROUS game supporting Ukraine and Bulgaria must play NO part of it, as it will only end in tears. Here in Hamilton I tell everyone I see and I am telling YOU to get your head out of your asses to ensure that Bulgaria exits the EU IMMEDIATELY and instead trade EXCLUSIVELY with the developing, stable nations like Syria, North Korea, Zimbabwe, China and Iran who are also our fraternal friends.

This is the Right Sector letter to Poroshenko, Poroshenko has hopped into bed with the Facists, The US and the EU, now the Facist fleas are going to eat him, I hope they do and start a civil war in the centre of Kiev.

Interesting to see how the US and EU will react now.

It is time Russia sent a peace keeping force into the Ukraine to protect ethnic Russians from this Facist threat and the break down in law and order that is likely to happen.

The Facist Right Sector has threatened the Kiev Government that they will march on Kiev fully armed unless their demands are met.

Basically they want their Facists to control the Ukranian army.

Interesting to see how this will develop but it could end up with the Kiev government supported and funded by the US and EU being dictated to by Facists.

Seedy, or Oedipus Complex in action ;-).....The Secret of Millennium is out: Seedka is the son of Tsar Putka!
And in full conformity with Freudian theory, the infantile Seedka fears that Father Putka will cut off his penis as
a punishment for Seedka's sexual desire [for his mother]. This fear, this Castration Anxiety, formed the hatred
of son Seedka towards Father Putka ;-).............................
Guard Your penis (if it is), Seedka. May Good A*se with ears on Your shoulders speed You!

Or be like Sa-sha - keep your head in Comrade Putin's ass and forget about the rest of the world.....

Listen fake George, you get it all wrong. The EU and Russia must NOT cooperate. Russia has a historic opportunity to show the world that the EU is a fake union and destroy it once and for all!
We will then be able to form a Slavic Union of the peaceful and joyful brotherhood of fellow nations and emerging markets and the world will be whole again.
This whole crap about ending the Soviet Union is as Comrade Putin says, the greatest geopolitical tragedy of the 21st century!
Get your head out of your asses Bulgaria and understand that Russia, Comrade Putin and emerging markets like North Korea and Cuba are the future!

That Ukrainian crisis and an absolute embarrassment for 21 century Europe is ruining the EU economy.
Italy is back in recession, France is barely moving, Germany is drastically down and pretty much all of the rest are stagnated.
Fast and peaceful resolution is needed for the Ukrainian crisis!
The EU and Russia must cooperate in order to stop that mindless Ukrainian disaster!
