"The dismissal of Lutsenko is a political reprisal, and there is no doubt that after this the Party of Regions will organize large-scale rigging in the second round of presidential elections in Ukraine. They did it in 2004 with the help of police, and we now are expecting for the same scenario," claimed MP from the BYuT.
Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko claimed during the trip to Kherson that Yuri Lutsenko will be appointed as the First Deputy Minister of Interior.
03:08 pm The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has appointed Yuri Lutsenko as an Acting Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, told a source in the Cabinet. According to the source, the Cabinet introduced the post of Deputy Minister of Interior for this.

03:17 pm Yuri Lutsenko has confirmed his appointment as the first Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs - Acting Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
As the First Vice Prime Minister Oleksandr Turchynov claimed, the decision on the appointment of Yuri Lutsenko as an Acting Chairman of the Ministers of Interior was made unanimously.

According to Turchynov, the Verkhovna Rada dismissed Yuri Lutsenko to destabilize the situation in the country and to increase the possibility of falsification in the second round of elections.
