Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has told the reporters in Kyiv March 9 that the country’s authorities can get over its current political crisis amid suspended anti-corruption efforts and low public confidence in government, naming three ways for such breakthrough, according to Kyiv Post.


The ways out of crisis may be either the renewal of a government coalition in parliament, or forming a new Cabinet of Ministers under the personal responsibility of President Petro Poroshenko, or early elections, according to Yatsenyuk who spoke at a Kyiv anniversary of poet Taras Shevchenko’s birthday on Wednesday, Kyiv Post reported.

“We need to renew the coalition and fill the staff of the Cabinet" to replace those who left their job. "Then we need to continue reform’s path and work hard. Because we have no alternative,” Yatsenyuk has told the reporters.

He went on to say: “The second variant - the president and his bloc take all responsibility for creating a new Cabinet, new government’s program and a new coalition in parliament. Then all their creations must be presented to the people of Ukraine for approval.”
