Tyler Durden's picture

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.

As Bloomberg reports,

Ukraine’s coalition collapsed after two parties quit during a months-long pro-Russian insurgency in the nation’s east that downed a Malaysian Air jet last week.

 

The UDAR and Svoboda parties said they’d leave the government and seek a snap parliamentary ballot, according to statements today on their websites. Under the constitution, the former Soviet republic has 30 days to form a new coalition or it must call early elections. The existing cabinet will remain in place in the meantime.

 

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s government, took over the country in February after pro-European street protests prompted Kremlin-backed President Viktor Yanukovych to flee to Russia. Yanukovych’s successor, billionaire Petro Poroshenko, had pledged to call parliamentary elections this year.

 

“We will probably have snap parliamentary elections at the end of October,” Yuriy Yakymenko, the head of political research at the Razumkov Center, said by phone from Kiev today. “This option was probably agreed on by political parties seeking elections and the president.”

 

The government and the current parliament will keep working until new institutions are formed, he said. Olga Lappo, Yatsenyuk’s spokeswoman, declined to comment when reached by phone today.

Damn, the USSA really knows how to pick a winning hand.

Urban Redneck's picture

The Parliament just outlawed the Communist Party, which held 23 seats, and there is a civil war going on in the east half of the country, and guess who will be counting the votes in the next election... This actually is a winning hand...

Watch..  The chaos that follows in Ukraine gives Putin ample reason to sent Russian troops into its eastern region as "peace keepers"

The USSA sez, "Well, the false flag plane crash didnt work, so please, Yatsenyuk, setp down and create a power vacuum... thatll get shit heated real quick."

COSMOS's picture

Yatsenyuk resigns, figures that parasite detaches after feeding on IMF money as much as he could steal.  He leaves govt before the winter disaster when it all sinks in to the people that they are screwed.  He will be on his megayacht in the Mediterranean denying any culpability.

Monty Burns's picture

Whoever it is he/she will also be Jewish to keep all the top positions (PM, President and main regional Governors) in the tribe's hands.  Then again, is it necessary any longer?  The Ukrainian gold is in NY.

This is what total control of the media gets you, a subservient population, look no further than the USA as an example.

"The Ukrainian gold is in NY."

Where is the Libyan gold? The German gold?

Monty Burns's picture

Good question.  Maybe the Ukrainian gold is not in NY after all. Maybe somewhere in the eastern Med.?

Whatchamacallit's picture

Sure will : Vladimir Groysman.

Yatsenyuk is smart, he leaves a big winner. Imagine how much IMF money slipped into his hands the last few months. Also, Kiev announced it's third draft call up for the war. Claiming to have suffered no major losses, people ask where the first two drafts have gone then? Answer, buried in the fields of East Ukraine.

Poundsand's picture

Those new draft call ups aren't for dead soldiers.  Ukraine needs to get some soldiers trained and indoctrinated prior to the riots that will come this winter when the gas gets shut off, their economy implodes, and the IMF money runs out or comes due or both.  You can't just get soldiers with an IQ of over 75 that will shoot their own people without a little prep time.

Their gold has already been shipped to the US. Mission accomplished.

Buck Johnson's picture

You are 100% correct.  And that is exactly what will happen when winter gets around and they look around and see how bad everything is and all the ones to blame are gone and with their money they pilfered.

Not for nothing, but how are Ukraininan bonds still trading above par?  That's some brave investors in those things.

They're not. A handful of funds hold the whole issue and are painting the tape.

 

Playing with OPM is good and well, but 8% p.a. to take 3 years of Uke risk?

That was nice of Tymoshenko to loan out one of her wigs.

She’s probably bald without one, too.

Pay them off with the Ukrainian gold moved to New York for (cough) safe keeping.

The plane thing didnt work out so well.

So it'll be 'down the memory hole' within a month, and you'll never hear about it

When you dumb down education for 100 years in America, its easy to create a populatin with 'ADHD' (actually nothing but t.v. & other media/'entertainment'  induced short attention spans and lack of any critical thinking skills taught in 'schools'. And putting &*^% in the food & water definitely doesn't help either.)

And checking a smartphone for messages every 30 seconds...  And being able to electornically divert one's attention, at any time (and it is socially acceptable, to boot!)

still same result.

Thank you DI.  Some common sense.

Watch..  The chaos that follows in Ukraine gives Putin ample reason to sent Russian troops into its eastern region as "peace keepers"

Chaos soon in Ukraine... ya think?

News Flash: Putin does not want E. Ukraine.  Isn't that much clear by now?

walküre's picture

Putin is pretty much forced to make a move when NATO knocks on the Russian borders and the lives of 8 million ethnic Russians hang in the balance.

Miles Ahead's picture

lol... wake me when NATO knocks.  Don't want to miss all the fireworks.  But if you think NATO knocking on Russia's borders puts Ukranian citizens (only) in the crosshairs, well - like Miles Davis said (or at least Apple inferred...) Think Differently. 

And really, this is about Putin caring about "ethnicity"?  Come on now... what a wonderful world.

If we could figure all this out 2-3 moves in advance we'd be...

Vlad Putin.

150 million Russians care about 8 million ethnic Russians

Putin has no choice BUT to care. His approval ratings are through the roof as is because he's a hardliner against the Zios.

Quus Ant's picture

Bringing Nazis to power and arming them isn't a good idea.  Surprise.  The WEst fools itself in thinking they can control these nutjobs.  Arming and providing political cover for whackadoos in Ukraine, Syria/Iraq, Saud and Israel- fuck me, it's come to this.

The WEst will get their proxy war.

Will Putin step in before or after Ukraine's ethnic Russians are cleansed?

NATO - Continental Europe, + Poland + Latvia = United States with a 50 lb handicap. I'm not betting on that horse.

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

Your use of BEDMAS confused me. 

You are saying Nato, without Continental Europe, but with Poland and Latvia?  Wouldn't have a popsicle's chance in hell of holding on to that.  Agreed.
