The behavior of Oleksandr Danylyuk during his speech in Ukraine’s Parliament on June 7 was “inadequate” and “unacceptable”. At the same time, his resignation will not affect the talks with the international partners, as Volodymyr Groysman, Ukraine’s PM, said in an exclusive commentary for 112 Ukraine on June 8.
“I regard his behavior as inadequate and unacceptable. I noticed that he himself was confused delivering speeches: every day he got a different reason. Therefore, trust me, he was just looking for a reason to justify his inadequate steps,” the Head of the Government thinks.
Groysman reminded that he gave Danylyuk two weeks to “correct the mistakes”.
“But if he did not want to do this – I have made a decision and regard it totally right,” he noted.
When asked whether Danylyuk’s resignation affects the talks with the Western partners, Groysman answered: “I do not think one should exaggerate the ex-Minister of Finance and his role in the modern Ukrainian politics. Anyway, it will affect neither the talks nor the continuation or start of reforms at all”.
On June 6, Volodymyr Groysman reported signing the submission for the dismissal of the Finance Minister from his post. Danylyuk claimed that he is put on pressure and demanded to deliver a speech at the parliament before the voting on his resignation.
