The Verkhovna Rada is ready to dismiss the current Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk, while it is hardly ready for the appointment of a new head of government.

Poroshenko Bloc leader Yurii Lutsenko told reporters on the sidelines of the parliament on Friday, Censor.NET informs citing Interfax.

"I can argue that the parliamentary arithmetic may well be a reason for discharging the prime minister, but no one to replace him is out there. Such an action would be irresponsible, as the government without a head, the parliament without a coalition, the country without a budget would mean an automatic termination of cooperation with the IMF, and without the next almost $5 bln tranche, it will be only a month before the country plunges into a hyperinflation and anarchy. This is an unacceptable scenario and Poroshenko Bloc's decision for today is to avoid the issue of the responsibility of the government before the budget and the Tax Code are adopted," Lutsenko said.
