After the government’s one-year immunity expires on November 12, it is to be reshuffled, Arsen Avakov, the interior minister of Ukraine is quoted as saying by the Ukrainian newspaper “Ukrayinska Pravda.”

He said the government was not very effective in every field. “It is impossible to keep the environment minister’s post vacant endlessly. It is impossible to bear endless scandals around the energy sector. It is impossible to bear the continuous fever in the health sector.”

At the same time, Avakov disclaimed the reports that the president seeks to dismiss him.  Moreover, Avakov is sure that Arseniy Yatsenyuk will not be replaced either. “I think, Arseniy is the optimal manager here, as he understands all these situations very well, through combinatory analysis. He enjoys a high esteem in the West, which is very important,” the minister said.

Avakov assured that despite the statements expressing the West’s discontent at Yatsenyuk, in fact, the West is satisfied with the activity of the Ukrainian prime minister.  “I am communicating with many foreign top officials without mediators, without Petro Poroshenko and Arseniy Yatsenyuk… We often exchange views openly. I do not feel that they are disappointed at Yatsenyuk,” Avakov said.

EADaily reported earlier that ex-president of Georgia, Odessa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili expressed readiness to take the prime minister’s post in Ukraine. Leader of Batkivshchyna Party Yulia Timoshenko, in turn, urged dismissal of the government and resignation of the prime minister. Batkivshchyna refuses to vote for any bills, unless gas price is reduced, pensions exempted from taxes and the moratorium on lands sale is extended.
