KIEV, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada members did not support the parliament’s resolution on the dismissal of Ihor Tenyukh as Acting Defense Minister. The corresponding resolution was supported by affirmative votes of 197 MPs, while 226 pro votes are needed to pass the decision.

“If the authorities have another vision on the developments, and if the authorities have another candidates for that post, I resign,” Tenyukh stated at the Verkhovna Rada’s session.

Parliament-appointed interim President and Verkhovna Rada Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said that he would hold consultations on this issue and would “take a decision on further actions”.

On Tuesday, Turchynov proposed the parliament to dismiss Tenyukh and appoint Mikhailo Koval as Ukraine’s acting defense minister.
