KIEV, July 25 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko has suggested to the national parliament that Arseny Yatsenyuk’s resignation from the position of the parliament-appointed prime minister be debated without delay.
“I hereby request that Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada [the parliament] will put the issue on the agenda without delay,” the presidential press service said citing an official letter Poroshenko sent to Speaker Alexander Turchinov.
“I insist that on July 25 the Verkhovna Rada will consider a vote of confidence in the cabinet of ministers,” the press service said.
Poroshenko said that the coalition's disbandment in the Verkhovna Rada could not lay a legal basis for the government to step down.
“As president, I positively evaluate the anti-crisis efforts of the current government,” he said. “I realise it is working in extremely difficult conditions that any other government has never been faced with. I expect that heated emotions will calm down and stone-cold reason and a sense of responsibility will take over so that the cabinet of ministers will continue its work.
