"The discussion about this merger is currently underway. We are inspired by the experience of Singapore, Great Britain and France," he said.

According to Tkachenko, this discussion continues in the party team. When aked whether this issue was discussed with the prime minister, he said it was "a matter of a political decision at the level of a coalition."

"But we will initiate this discussion," Tkachenko said.
