Parliament in Ukraine to confirm new government

Ukraine’s parliament is to consider the nomination Thursday of a new government presided by one of the leaders of a protest movement that spearheaded the ouster of President Viktor Yanukovych over the weekend, RIA Novosti reports.

Arseny Yatsenyuk, who served as economy minister for a year up to August 2006, is expected to guide a Cabinet that will among its first challenges face steering Ukraine through a perilous debt crisis and restoring stability in the deeply divided country.

Another notable nomination includes that of Andriy Paruby, head of a self-defined defense force during recent months of protests, as secretary of the National Security and Defense Council.
