State interests must be priority for Ukraine’s MPs, - U.S. Department of State
Washington watches the situation in Ukraine very closely, Spokesman Mark Toner said
The U.S. Department of state recommended Ukraine’s political parties to consider national interests its priority. Mark Toner, Deputy Speaker of the Department of State, said this at a daily briefing.
“We’re following the latest developments in the Parliament very closely. I don’t want to gamble on the expected results, but we highly recommend that all Ukraine’s political parties consider the needs of the entire country and make them their priority”, Toner commented on President Poroshenko’s statement, in which he urged Prime Minister Yatsenyuk to resign.
On February 16, Ukraine’s Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, failed to disband Yatsenyuk’s government. The respective resolution didn’t get enough votes of the MPs; however, the Parliament admitted that the government’s actions in 2015 were unsatisfactory.
Prime Minister Yatsenyuk held a speech at the Parliament, reporting on the government’s activity throughout the last year. After that, heads of parliamentary factions and leaders of parliamentary committees heavily criticized the Premier and his ministers. Soon after Yatsenyuk started his speech, 150 votes were collected in the Parliament to support the vote of censure. The document didn’t get enough votes.
