The issue on replacing the prime minister of Ukraine is not on the agenda, as the country needs to be united and cooperation of the president, the parliament and the government, says a joint statement made by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Supreme Rada Chair Volodymyr Groysman.
They also note that Ukrainian politicians “need to show their political culture inherent to a European country.”
“We find inadmissible any forms of confrontation inside the parliamentary coalition like for instance those that are bringing grist to mill of enemies of the Ukrainian statehood and democracy. We are united in our vision of the nation’s development strategy. The coalition agreement consolidates a certain action plan for its implementation,” the statement runs.
The document also says that the Ukrainian economy has shown first signs of growth in the final quarter of the year. “A structural reform of the energy sector is taking place. System changed in anti-corruption policies have begun. It is extremely important today not to do things halfway, as we are to overcome the whole way to the Ukrainian success,” the authors of the message believe.
As EADaily reported earlier, Odessa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili recently spoke of possible soon resignation of the government. To remind, Saakashvili had a quarrel with Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Interior Minister Arsen Avakov. Avakov squirted out water from his glass on Saakashvili during a debate on privatization of Odessa Port Plant at a meeting of the National Reform Council. At a news conference after that, Saakashvili said that Arsen Avakov was in direct control of “unofficial armed groups.”
