Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk believes that the responsibility for the political instability in the country rests with President Petro Poroshenko. He expressed this opinion during the TV program “10 Minutes with the Prime Minister” on Sunday, February 28th.
Yatsenyuk explained that the Verkhovna Rada put the cabinet to a vote of no confidence on February 16, but only 194 out of 339 MPs voted in favor of the motion, short of the 226 needed for it to be passed.
“Thus, the government is legally and fully legitimate and continues to work. But the political uncertainty remains, and it needs to end”, Yatsenyuk stated.
According to the Prime Minister, the responsibility for the political instability in the country rests with the President and his faction, as well as with other political forces that form the coalition "European Ukraine".
Yatsenyuk stated that “the current government this year has done more than any previous government in 20 years”, reported TASS.
“The cabinet is under constant attack by certain forces inside the country who want to greedily come to power… the government has developed an action plan for this year. But it is not only the action plan, it is the agenda for the further development of the country, which must be a real European country, " the Prime Minister concluded.
