“We need more clarity about the status of the government and the parliamentary coalition in Ukraine, so that we can continue with the policy aimed at support and enhancement of the Ukrainian economy”, the IMF Spokesman Jerry Rice said at a press briefing in Washington on March 3 (Interfax-Ukraine).
Previously, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said that the parliamentary coalition is responsible for the reboot of the government, which some believe to be necessary to continue reforms in the country. Premier Arseniy Yatseniuk noted, that, though his government is entirely legitimate, it was time to “put an end to political uncertainty”.
Last month, the Parliament failed to fire Yatsenyuk’s government, providing not enough votes for the respective bill. Yatsenyuk has been chairing the Ukrainian Cabinet since spring 2014; since then, his government’s work received quite controversial evaluations, which often include criticism for unpopular decisions in social policy and accusations of corruption of specific officials.
