KIEV, February 27. /TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament grows dissatisfied with the government led by Arseniy Yatsenyuk that is unable to stop the collapse of the country’s economy and hryvnia, the Vesti Internet portal reported on Friday.
"Off-the-record, even many coalition deputies say that they are ready to press the "yes" button if the Yatsenyuk’s resignation is put up for the voting, even if the faction decides not to do this," the article reads.
One of the deputies said a total of 200 billion hryvnias was printed within just one year when Yatsenyuk came to power, compared with 180 billion hryvnias during the four years when the government was led by ex-prime minister Mykola Azarov.
"This government needs to be toppled," the parliamentarian said, while adding that there are practically no chances that the voting will be held.
On Thursday, Yatsenyuk called for immediately convening a parliamentary coalition to adopt a number of laws that could help the government stabilize the financial system in the country.
Ukraine’s National Bank on Thursday set its official rate to a record low level of 30.01 hryvnia per dollar, down from 28.05 on Wednesday.
On Thursday, several protesters were injured when police dispersed a rally outside the National Bank’s building in Kiev. The protesters have been demanding resignation of Ukraine’s National Bank Governor Valeria Gontareva and her first deputy Alexander Pisarchuk for several days.
The rally has been already dubbed the "financial Maidan," media reports said.
