Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko applauds as the parliament confirmed Pavlo Klimkin as new foreign minister in Kyiv on June 19, 2014. Klimkin, 46, the current ambassador to Germany who also represents Kyiv in peace negotiations with Russia, replaces acting foreign minister Andriy Deshchytsya, who became embroiled in controversy at the weekend when he used a swearword to describe Russian President Vladimir Putin while trying to restrain protesters who attacked Moscow's embassy compound in Kyiv.
