On Saturday, speaker of the Supreme Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) Vladimir Litvin stated at a congress of the People's Democratic Party of Ukraine that the authority of Ukraine in the international arena dropped below the zero degree mark.
He especially stressed that the opposition and the power were fighting each other though in that struggle they did not notice that they lost Ukraine.
Vladimir Litvin was also of the opinion that Ukrainian political forces should as soon as possible work out new rules of the game to improve people's lives and against that background to form a positive image of the country.
