MP Olha Bodnar from the oppositional Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko has offered to dismiss Sergiy Tigipko from the post of vice premier of Ukraine. A relevant draft resolution was registered in the Verkhovna Rada on Monday, Bodnar told Interfax-Ukraine. As reported, the Verkhovna Rada sacked Vice Prime Minister for Humanitarian Affairs Volodymyr Semynozhenko and Environment Minister Viktor Boiko last week. Tigipko is in charge of economic issues.

What has he done to be dismissed?

Is he not, at least in some way, responsible for getting IMF cooperation again?

That is a good thing isn't it?
