On Feb. 16, Verkhovna Rada failed to dismiss Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and his government.
While the lawmakers of President Petro Poroshenko’s faction looked
outraged by Yatsenyuk’s performance, they made sure that they don’t
give enough votes to actually dismiss him. Lawmakers loyal to oligarchs
Ihor Kolomoisky and Rinat Akhmetov supported Yatsenyuk, too.
