DAVOS, January 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich promised to reshuffle the government, but said Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov will keep his post.
“The rotation of government ministers will definitely take place,” he told reporters at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday, but denied reports about Azarov’s resignation.
“I do not see any grounds for such a decision. There was no resignation offer,” Yanukovich said.
Also on Thursday Yanukovich’s administration began to check the foreign ministry. Although Foreign Minister Konstantin Grishchenko said there was nothing extraordinary about the check, Ukrainian mass media has been reporting his upcoming resignation since late last year.
In October a similar check was conducted in the finance ministry and Yanukovich fired Finance Minister Fedor Yaroshenko a week ago.
