Update: Ukrainian deputies collected 159 signatures, more than 150 required, which will enable them to proceed w/ no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s cabinet, lawmaker Mustafa Nayem says in Twitter. This means Yats is out.

Nearly two years after Victoria Nuland decided that "Yats" should be her puppet prime minister in Ukraine as part of the CIA-organized presidential coup, the latest embarrassment for the U.S. State Department is about to become a fact when moments ago Ukrainian billionaire president Petro Poroshenko called on Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to resign and urged the formation of a technocratic government to end a political crisis and reignite an overhaul of the economy.
This follows just one week after the country's foreign "technocratic" Economy minister Aivaras Abromavicius resigned saying he had no desire "to serve as a cover-up for covert corruption, or become puppets for those who, very much like the old government, are trying to exercise control over the flow of public funds."
This suggests that it is not the "lack of technocrats" that is the reason for Ukraine's endless government chaos; it is the pervasive corruption at all levels of government that is hobbling the nation which only exists due to day to day IMF generosity and funding.
Cite by Bloomberg, Poroshenko’s spokesman Svyatoslav Tsegolko said on Twitter that "in order to renew trust, therapy isn’t enough, surgery is needed. To renew trust in power, the President has asked the Prosecutor General and the Prime Minister to quit." What he meant is that it is time for someone else to embezzle millions in IMF funds.
In a separate statement on his website, Poroshenko called for a “complete government reboot” and said he’s seeking to avoid early elections. He urged lawmakers to quickly decide on the fate of the government.
In short: Ukraine's relapse into a government crisis is almost at hand.
