Current Ukraine’s Prime Minister is not tired. He would continue to head the Cabinet, no matter what his opponents want. Groysman now can literally sing about himself to his opponents (especially since the song is addressed to a woman, we remember the opposition Groysman-Tymoshenko), why he does not want to leave the post of prime minister.

The first reason is the face of Groysman himself. In recent weeks, the prime minister has shown that his government is firmly on its feet. And he does not sit out, but does his job. With varying success, but they work - we have heard such statements from all officials and deputies representing the coalition. It seems that last week can be considered a week of government. The prime minister reported to the press and felt confident. And the next month, when the deputies would be on "vacation", the government is likely to show itself in the best light - they say, deputies are resting, officials are working.

The second reason is connected with the dreams of Groysman and the opposition. The Verkhovna Rada is not ready to send the Cabinet of Ministers to resign. For those politicians who criticize the government, this is a convenient position for earning political dividends. Here everything is simple in the rhetoric of the opposition: "that's who is to blame for all the troubles of the country," "he must respond," "our party would not lead to such an impoverishment of the population," etc. But make a guess which is the current rating of the "Popular Front". And consequently there is no substitute for Groysman. In the coalition "bench of spare" is not that long. And it is necessary to negotiate, reshape everything, redistribute the posts, so that no one feels hurt. And now it is necessary to decide who will become the next head of the National Bank of Ukraine and of the State Property Fund.

The third reason is all of our (our authorities') words, almost believed by our international partners. We still hope to get their money. At least one more tranche from the IMF would be good in 2017, although this year three more money transfers from the Fund are expected (for a total amount of 4.4 billion dollars). But for the tranche to become ours, we must fulfill a number of obligations: the points on pension reform and the land market are on the waiting list. So, maybe it is better to put on Groysman the whole responsibility for such unpopular decisions?

The fourth reason is a situation in terms of which it is difficult to understand, who is responsible for the current state of the economy, the social sphere. Our government is an executive body, but the Verkhovna Rada writes the laws. Do Deputies want Groysman's resignation for inefficient work, right? And he says that the Rada does not want to carry out reforms. So who is to blame?

And the fifth reason is "love;" there is no love in the coalition. Two factions that form a coalition, have learned to live and vote without their former partners in the majority. And here, even if someone wants to dismiss Prime Minister Groysman, it will be an initiative from the majority, not from the opposition. Because the opposition has no votes.

In the meantime, Groysman remains a politician and head of government, who suits everyone. Well, almost all. Therefore, while he still has every chance to show how to lead the country (effectively!).
