KIEV, April 10. /TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Sunday he has tendered resignation.
"I am resigning as prime minister and I would like to stress with dignity my national liability before the state. I see my competences wider than those of a head of government," he said in a regular weekly televised address.
He said the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will consider the issue of his resignation early next week. "The resignation will be handed in to the Verkhovna Rada on Tuesday, April 12," he said.
In his words, the political crisis in Ukraine has been deliberately instigated. "The desire to change one man has stricken politicians blind" and "the process of the government overhaul has turned into an unreflecting running in place," he said explaining his motives.
He said his resignation is to be immediately followed by the formation of a new government and a new constitutional majority in the parliament.
