Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk To Resign

The Ukrainian Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced his resignation two months after he survived a no-confidence vote in parliament. Arseniy Yatsenyuk, 15th Prime Minister of Ukraine is a lawyer and economist.

Yatsenyuk’s government has been besieged by war, corruption and economic struggles. His cabinet survived a no-confidence vote in February, but two parties left the governing coalition in protest that the prime minister wasn’t ousted, a move that deprived the coalition of a majority in parliament.


Yatsenyuk was an opposition leader in 2014 when massive protests helped drive pro-Russia President Viktor Yanukovych from power. Yanukovych had been viewed as slowing Ukraine’s economic march toward the West. But his resignation sparked an outcry from Moscow, and within weeks Russia annexed Crimea.
