KIEV, April 10. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Sunday he is ready to work with any new prime minister but hopes it will be speaker of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) Volodymyr Groysman.
"On Tuesday, we are to have a coalition and a decision on the prime minister. I expect it will be Groysman," he said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels, adding he he is ready to work with any prime minister.
Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said earlier on Sunday he is stepping down as Ukraine’s prime minister. "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.
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.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Sunday he will not dissolve the current parliament.
"I respect the Ukrainian parliament. I want no confrontation with either the parliament or the government. I have no other parliament for you and will have no whatsoever," he said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels.
