Adviser to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko Oleh Medvediev has explained the president's statement about the need for "rapid reload" of the government.
"Rapid – I think it means [it will hapen] in February. The Cabinet of Ministers has submitted a written report to the Verkhovna Rada. As far as I understand, it must be considered in committees and factions. And on February 16, a verbal report of the Cabinet of Ministers must take place in the Verkhovna Rada..." Ukrainian TV Channel 5 quoted Medvediev's answer to the question about the recent statement of the President on "rapid reload" of the government.
