Description:

Ukraine’s incredibly unpopular prime minister has finally resigned. He will probably be forever remembered by his nickname ‘Yats’ – given to him by the Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland. Yatsenyuk’s failure in power speaks volumes about the many failures Ukraine has experienced since the illegal regime change two years ago.

Yatsenyuk

Ukraine Prime Minister Resigns, Says “Destabilization Inevitable” Without New Government:

Did the Panama Papers just claim their second victim?

Just days after Rothschild was forced to defend Ukraine’s billionaire president Petro Poroshenko from his involvement in with the Panamanian tax haven law firm Mossack Fonseca, when it said that “as a matter of principle, we never comment on individuals or client relationships, but on this occasion we have been authorized by our client to confirm that Rothschild Trust has been appointed by Mr Poroshenko as trustee of a blind trust to hold his shares in Roshen”, moments ago Ukraine’s embattled prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced that he had resigned, according to local media reports.

“I decided to resign from the post of Ukraine’s prime minister. On Tuesday, April 12, the decision will be submitted to the Verkhovna Rada [Ukrainian parliament]”, Yatsenyuk said as quoted by Ukrainian TV channels Sunday. Continue reading »

​‘Soviets invading Germany, Ukraine:’ Berlin faces tough choice on PM Yatsenyuk’s WW2  (RT, Jan 10, 2015):

This week, Ukraine Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said the USSR had invaded Germany and Ukraine in WW2. Despite attempts by the Western press to bury the story, Russia is now demanding answers from Berlin.

Nothing is louder than silence. I know this, you know this and you can be sure that Angela Merkel knows it too. Why then is the Chancellor’s government refusing to comment on Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s extraordinary remarks? The reasons are complex, as I will shortly outline. First, though, here’s what Yatsenyuk actually said.

“All of us still clearly remember the Soviet invasion of Ukraine and Germany,” he told German-state broadcaster ARD. “We need to avoid [a repeat of] it.”

“Nobody has the right to rewrite the results of the Second World War,” he also added. “Russia’s President Putin is trying to do exactly this.” Continue reading »

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Government Collapses, PM Yatsenyuk Resigns (Zerohedge, July 24, 2014):

As if Ukraine was not struggling through enough turmoil currently, Bloomberg reports that the fragile coalition government has collapsed after two parties quit. The UDAR and Svoboda parties said they’d leave the government and seek a snap parliamentary ballot. Tempers have been fraying recently as numerous brawls have broken out in parliament ahead of President Poroshenko’s pledge to call elections this year. All we have to do now is find out who Washington would like to see in power? The end result: Prime Minister Yatsenyuk just resigned. The big question now is what will the IMF do about the remaining tranches of its loans? Via BBG:

  • *YATSENYUK RESIGNS
  • *YATSENYUK SAYS HE RESIGNS BECAUSE OF COALITION COLLAPSE
  • *YATSENYUK SAYS HE WON’T CALL FOR A NEW COALITION
  • *YATSENYUK SAYS HE RESIGNS ALSO BECAUSE GOVT LAWS FAILED TO PASS
  • *UKRAINE SPEAKER TURCHYNOV CALLS FOR INTERIM PREMIER

How The Ukrainian government has settled these problems in the past.

Ukraine PM Warns Russia’s “Economic Aggression” Is Unacceptable (Zerohedge, April 7, 2014):

“Russia was unable to seize Ukraine by means of military aggression,” Ukraine’s PM Yatsenyuk blasted, “Now they are implementing plans to seize Ukraine through economic aggression.” His comments come after Russia’s Gazprom raised prices for gas 81% from $268.50 to $485.50 (on the basis that the previous discount was a subsidy for allowing the use of the Black Sea port of Sevastopol, which Russia now has annexed) to which Yatsenyuk chided “political pressure is unacceptable, and we are not accepting the price of $500.” Mr. Yatsenyuk, as WSJ reports, said his government will not pay the new price and will raise the issue in the Stockholm Arbitrage court, which was selected by the two countries years ago to settle the gas disputes – but warned his people that the country should prepare for Russia switching off natural-gas supplies.

As The Wall Street Jorunal reports, Ukraine’s prime minister warned Saturday that the country should prepare for Russia switching off natural-gas supplies, as the energy monopoly Gazprom said it will raise the price for gas for Ukraine by 81%.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, said Moscow’s price increase was a form of “economic aggression,” adding that Kiev will not recognize the new price and is ready to challenge it in the international arbitrage court.
