Ukrainian member of parliament ready to work with her allies to unite country

February 25th, 2014
02:55 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

The former Ukrainian opposition is “ready to the unite a country,” Member of Parliament Lesya Orobets told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday from Kiev.

“We Ukrainians do not feel scared with the unrealistic tasks,” Orobets said. “Three months ago no one could have told that such Maidan can happen, and that [the] Yanukovych regime will be over.”

Ukraine remains in the grip of crisis three days after a popular uprising drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power.

The opposition has again delayed naming a new interim government after pledging to do so Tuesday.

There are discouraging reports of political disarray and parliamentary squabbling, and the ousted president is still missing.

For the first time, Orobets said, Ukraine is “transparently” discussing a new government “before it is actually appointed or elected.”

Ukraine's neighbor, Russia – which prised Ukraine away from the EU with a $15 billion loan in November – has withdrawn that offer, and no one knows quite what hand President Vladimir Putin will play now that Russia accuses Yanukovych of being driven out by an "armed mutiny" of extremists and terrorists.

“We have not only the internal enemies, but we have the external enemies like Russia,” Orobets said. “We are afraid of military intervention, and Putin is trying to find a pretext for that.”

Russia’s Foreign Minister has again vowed not to intervene militarily, but tension is already high between pro-Russian and pro-European Ukrainians. Clashes have broken out in the Crimea region on the Black Sea.

“We have to make unpopular steps, and we have to have this government taking those steps,” Orobets said. “Not just to have financial aid, but to have the plan of reforms to get outside of this economic crisis.”

“This is not just the issue of Ukraine. This is the issue of the whole region’s stability.”

    Despite its economic difficulties, the EU, with US support, must stand by Ukraine.
