Serhiy Marchenko has been appointed Ukraine's finance minister after repeat voting by the Verkhovna Rada, the country's parliament.
The decision was made at a special parliament meeting on March 30.
It was backed by 256 Members of Parliament with the required minimum being 226.
After the vote, Marchenko took the oath as a member of the government.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was present in the session hall.
A few hours before, lawmakers failed to appoint Marchenko at the first attempt, as the number of their votes was below the required minimum.
