KIEV, February 10. /TASS/. Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on Tuesday approved Viktor Shokin as the country's new prosecutor general.

A total of 318 parliament members voted for Shokin's candidacy sumbitted by President Petro Poroshenko.

Shokin, Ukraine's deputy prosecutor general since 2002, said his key task was the completion of criminal cases "against top officials linked to the criminal activity of [former president Viktor] Yanukovych's regime."

Earlier on Tuesday the parliament approved the resignation of Prosecutor General Vitaly Yarema appointed in June 2014.

Yarema stepped down on Monday after more than 130 Rada members demanded his dismissal accusing him of the lack on progress in the investigation of a number of high-profile cases.
