    The chairman of the Entrepreneurs Council at the Cabinet of Ministers and Chairman of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation (UAG) Leonid Kozachenko accused Yatsenyuk’s parliament of jeopardizing the mere existence of Ukraine, before resigning from his duties.

    Kozachenko, Verkhovna Rada Deputy from Petro Poroshenko Bloc, published his announcement on the UAG official website.

    "Summarizing the results of one and a half years of work, there's a serious threat not just to the country's economy, but to the mere existence of the state," he said.

    According to Kazachenko, the government took no concrete steps to implement reforms and to fight corruption and there was also not enough interengagement with the business community.  

    "We requested $3 billion in technical assistance and drew plenty of foreigners for work in the government, but received nothing in return," he noted.

    Between 2001 and 2002, Kozachenko held the position ofDeputy Minister of Agrarian Policy in Ukraine.
