    Recently, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko nominated Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada and his party fellow Vladimir Groisman for the new country's Prime Minister.

    The move has been a blow to the current Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who is becoming increasingly unpopular among the local population, but still remains in power, an Austrian magazine wrote.

    "If factions of the coalition would consider my candidacy for joining the Cabinet, I will be ready to take the responsibility," Groisman stated earlier.

    The news about Groisman's candidacy came a few days after Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalia Yaresko announced her willingness to become Prime Minister herself and lead a "government of technocrats".

    "Maidan devours its own children, while the country continues to sink deeper into chaos", Contra Magazin wrote. "As a result of the ongoing government crisis in Ukraine, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk once again has to take a punch," the magazine concluded.

    Earlier, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk's government survived a no-confidence vote, which provoked various factions to leave the ruling parliamentary coalition. Another vote of no-confidence cannot be held until the next parliamentary session, scheduled to open on September 6.
