MPs Mustafa Nayem, Serhiy Leshchenko and Svitlana Zalishchuk have announced departure from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction in parliament.

"I have submitted a statement about my withdrawal from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction. This is a formality. We have long been on the different sides of the barricades in terms of values. The recent events only proved it. I came to politics after the revolution and even formally, I do not want to have anything in common with those who head a counter-revolution," Nayem said on Telegram.

Both Nayem and Leshchenko used to be well-known journalists before they were elected to parliament.
