KIEV, March 25. /TASS/. A crowd of 400 is demonstrating in front of the Ukrainian government’s building for the resignation of the current Cabinet of Ministers, including Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a TASS correspondent reports from the site.
The demonstrators are carrying posters "Yatsenyuk is Tycoons’ Creature" and "Yatsenyuk is Traitor of the Revolution of Dignity."
The demonstrators are accusing Yatsenyuk of corruption and lack of the promised reform. Two parliament members from the Freedom party, Igor Miroshnichenko and Andrey Ilyenko are among the protesters.
Earlier, Ukrainian experts speculated that some changes may be made to the Ukrainian government. Some pointed to Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko as a likely candidate for premiership. According to the Razumkov Centre pollster, only three parties: the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, Samopomoshch and the Opposition Bloc would manage to get over the 5-percent hurdle in parliamentary elections, if these were to be held on Sunday.
