Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said he trusts in his entourage.

"I personally cannot thoroughly examine each of the thousands of documents that I get to sign. It is clear that the issue of trust in the staff of the office, of trust to the competence, honesty, and responsibility is a key issue. You have asked for an honest answer, I have said frankly that I have trust in my entourage," he wrote on his Facebook page on Friday.

At the same time, the premier noted that there were cases during his career when people he trusted didn't live up to his expectations.

"It was very painful, but I naturally took decisions to part with such people, I will not mention their names, for ethical reasons," the prime minister said.
