KIEV, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. Cabinet of ministers will be reshuffled next week, President Viktor Yanukovich said.
“The cabinet of minister will be reshuffled January 28 when the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s national parliament - Itar-Tass) gathers for an emergency session,” he said at a meeting with the heads of religious denominations and organizations present in this country, the presidential press service said.
“We’ll endorse a decision on the cabinet of ministers at an emergency session next Tuesday and I’ll sign it,” Yanukovich said. “We’ll reformat the cabinet in the manner that will enable us to make its composition optimal.”
“The overhauled cabinet will work for the entire Ukrainian state,” he said.
Yanukovich also said he would continue talks with the irreconcilable opposition on clearing away the current political deadlock.
“I’ll continue dialogue with the leaders of the opposition to avert violence in this country,” Yanukovich said at a meeting with the heads of Churches and religious organizations.
“If we manage to do this in earnest, then the conflict will be stopped in earnest, but if not, then we’ll enact all the legitimate methods,” he said.
