I am sure that both Tigipko and Yatseniuk have a good chance to be in the team that will unite Ukraine and will build our country together with me," Yanukovych said on the air of the Inter TV channel.
"I am confident that many new persons and experienced staff that are capable of efficient work will join on this track," he said.
