    The leader of Ukraine’s Communist party thinks that any government led by a prime minister appointed by Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko cannot be stable.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Any government led by a prime minister appointed by Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko following incumbent Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s resignation cannot be stable or professional, the leader of Ukraine’s Communist party Petro Symonenko told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    "They all are proxies appointed by the oligarchic Poroshenko regime — in 2005-2006, the media called Poroshenko the most corrupt figure [in Ukraine]. Therefore, where there is no professionalism while the ministries follow orders of big business of course, there can be no perspectives and consistency in the implementation of [development] programs,” Symonenko said.

    “This government can't be stable as it doesn't pursue stability, it rather performs instructions dictated from abroad,” he added.

    The Ukraine political crisis escalated in February, after the parliamentary faction aligned to Ukraine's president – the Petro Poroshenko Bloc – described the cabinet’s work in 2015 as unsatisfactory. The following day, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government survived a no-confidence vote, which forced various factions to leave the ruling parliamentary coalition. On Sunday, Yatsenyuk announced his resignation amid the ongoing parliamentary crisis in the country.

    Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada is set to consider Yatsenyuk's resignation on Tuesday, as well as forming a new coalition and possibly appointing a new government. The Petro Poroshenko Bloc has nominated speaker of the Ukrainian parliament Volodymyr Groysman for the post of Prime Minister.
