He said that he would file the application after the Government’s session on May 22.
“I think all of you understand that the Government demits office before the newly elected Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and not before the newly elected President. At the same time, I decided to resign right after another session of the Government. I would like to stress that over three years of the work of our Government I am not ashamed for what we have managed to do and the adequate way in which we reacted to the challenges and crisis we faced,” Groysman said.
Earlier, during his inauguration speech President Zelensky said that Cabinet of Ministers should resign “if it can not do anything”.
After Zelensky took office, PM Groysman congratulated him and wished success.
Groysman headed Ukraine’s Government since April 14, 2016.
