A rally involving over 2,000 people is being staged in support of Yuschenko's government near the building of the Ukrainian Supreme Council. The action was staged by the Ukrainian People's Rukh, the party Reform and Order, the Congress of Ukrainian nationalists and other forces siding with the government and viewing it as reformist and meeting the interests of Ukrainian people. On Tuesday the Ukrainian legislature is to consider the government responsibility. A bill of no-confidence in the Yuschenko Cabinet was submitted to the session's secretariat by the communist faction. Over 240 people's deputies voted for dissolving the government. As many as 226 votes out of 449 MPs working in the Supreme Council are needed to put the issue on the agenda in the session hall.
