Yatsenyuk resigned on Thursday evening after the break-up of the ruling coalition in the parliament.
Verkhovna Rada speaker Oleksandr Turchynov announced the break-up of the coalition after Vitali Klitschko's UDAR party and Oleh Tyahnibok's Svoboda (Freedom) had left hte parlimentary majority. Turchynov demanded that the "dissenters" immediately propose a candidate for caretaker prime minister.
President Petro Poroshenko supported the deputies's wish to reload the government, saying this should not paralize the parliament's work, and requested a vote of confidence in the government.
