Ukraine Has A New Government And Prime Minister

Ukraine's Interim Leaders Propose Yatsenyuk As New PM -- Voice of America

They announced Yatsenyuk's nomination before a large crowd Wednesday in Kyiv's Independence Square. Parliament is expected to consider his name Thursday.

.... "We are on the brink of a disaster and this is the government of political suiciders. So welcome to hell".

It is clear that Ukraine's new PM is not optimistic on the near future.
