Two years after the Maidan revolution, the country is again in a deep crisis. President Petro Poroshenko has urged Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to resign. Nevertheless, the government managed to survive a no confidence vote. For any other country, this scenario would be disastrous, but not for Ukraine, the article read.
The situation is that within one political system there is a standoff between two opposing forces which have to jointly rule the country. According to the author, Ukrainian people are fed up with political scandals and see their country headed toward a dead-end, like after the Orange Revolution in 2004.
Despite the rift between the government and the president, the cabinet has no strong cards against Poroshenko, because it has failed all reforms and the struggle with corruption.
Those who made attempts to implement reforms have resigned, and the entire government now should follow in their steps, according to the author.
"But the government managed to stay in power, having stripped the country of the last chance to avert catastrophe," the article concluded.
