KIEV, February 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Sunday his government has to deal with pressure from those domestic forces that are "seeking to get to power."
"The current government has done more over one year than all the previous governments in 20 years," he said in a traditional weekly televised address. "But the cabinet is under never-ending attack from certain forces in the country which seek to get to power."
He admitted that the country was facing an economic slump and impoverishment of people. "But no one but us can solve these problems," Yatsenyuk said and called on the president and his political force in the Verkhovna Rada (parliament), the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, for "coordinated actions."
He once again gave to understand that he was not going to resign despite the fact that the parliament had recognized his government’s activities as unsatisfactory. "The government has elaborated a plan of actions for 2016 and is ready to implement it," Yatsenyuk said.
On February 16, Ukraine’s parliament failed to send Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and his government to resignation. A no-confidence vote was supported by 194 lawmakers whereas at least 226 votes are needed to pass a resolution. However several minutes before the no-confidence voting the Rada recognized the government’s work as unsatisfactory.
