The resignation of Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk will have no effect on the crisis in the country, as the core of the government is "ultra-corrupted and a sort of mafia," a member of the Austrian parliament from the right-wing Freedom Party of Austria (FPO), told Sputnik.

"The recent resignation of the Prime Minister will not change a lot [in the Ukrainian crisis] as a core of the government around the president apparently is ultra-corrupted and a sort of mafia," Johannes Hubner said.
