Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk's statement on his resignation is a way out of the political crisis in Ukraine, it was stated in the Petro Poroshenko Bloc parliamentary faction.
"This is a way out of the crisis. Now we can form a new government and elect a new prime minister," deputy head of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction Oleksiy Honcharenko said, commenting on Yatseniuk's statement to Interfax-Ukraine.
"On Tuesday, we will vote for Groysman (appointment of incumbent Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Groysman to the post of prime minister). And for the whole composition of government, either," Honcharenko said.
He noted that the incumbent prime minister could have taken this decision before, but welcomed Yatseniuk's intention to resign.
