MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The appointment of Volodymyr Groysman as Ukraine’s new prime minister will not help end the political chaos in the country, Acting Foreign Minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Natalya Nikonorova said on Thursday.
"Groysman’s appointment means the cabinet sets a course more loyal to Poroshenko’s policies. He said in one of his latest statements on April 5 that elections in Donbass are impossible and his remarks mirror word for word the Ukrainian president’s position," Nikonorova was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying. "Along with this, we can speak about neither real opposition nor stable coalition and so this will end the political chaos by no means."
Earlier on Thursday, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada parliament accepted Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s resignation and voted to appoint former Speaker Volodymyr Groysman as the new prime minister and also approved the cabinet of ministers suggested by Groysman.
