Quite reminiscent of Hitler's approach to democracy from 1934. Removing a few hostile factions from the Reichstag guaranteed that the votes came out better... ASAIK, the communist faction is small (they got about 5% of the vote in elections the last time).
There is probably a connection here to the reported vote in Rada on dumping Turchinov ("President"). The remnants of the Party of the Regions + Communists would be a majority or close... no more.
