On the morning of July 24, 2014 in Kiev the UDAR and Svoboda political parties pulled out of the coalition government, effectively bringing the business of running the country and its’ military operations to a halt. Several hours later the favourite of the U.S. government, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk resigned his post in frustration.
President Petro Poroshenko must now institute parliamentary elections and has promised to do so by fall of this year. In the interim, Poroshenko has placed Volodymyr Hroysman as acting prime minister. Mr. Hroysman was elected mayor of the western city of Vinnytsia in 2006 and has been assistant prime minister since he and his troupe burned out the formerly elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych in February of this year.
I can only imagine the current problems with paying and controlling the Ukrainian military have added to the headaches of being a western puppet. In May of this year, Mr. Poroshenko promised the military a large budget, giving each soldier $83.00 per day in pay however there are stories coming out of the Ukraine that their forces are running out of food, fuel and ammunition. At this writing I will not hold my breath for any changes under Mr. Hroysman or any future prime minister put there by Poroshenko and the west.
God bless Humanity
An update July 31, 2014: Poroshenko and the U.S. have opened up their piggy banks and are now funding infrastructure and military budgets, the lack of which had caused ‘Yats’ to quit. As it stands now, they won’t let him quit.
