Ashgabat - Ukraine's acting Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has good chances of remaining prime minister, but it all depends on whom he brings to his team, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has said.

"As for Mykola Yanovych [Azarov], he is no doubt one of the best prime ministers, and has achieved the best results in his work under various conditions. For this reason, he has a very good chance [… but] a lot will depend on whom he brings to his team," Yanukovych told reporters in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, on Wednesday.

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
