After attending the March 9 ceremony held on the occasion of the 202nd anniversary of Taras Shevchenko, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk told the reporters he sees three options for tackling the current political crisis in Ukraine, says a message posted on the Prime Minister’s official website.

“The first option is to get the coalition back on track, approve the missing ministers and continue with the reforms, because there is no other alternative to this. The second option is for Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and his parliamentary faction to accept responsibility for forming a new government and coalition. Once that is done, they should make it known to the Ukrainian people in order to get their support. The third option, and the least acceptable one, is to hold an early election,” said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.  

The Prime Minister emphasized that it is crucial to choose one of the three options as soon as possible.  

“I have suggested the first option. And I do hope that the parties making up the coalition, and particularly the Radical Party and Samopomich, will make the decision on getting it back on track and continuing with reforms in Ukraine,” Yatsenyuk said.
