Ukrainian political crisis over for Groysman ruling out snap vote - Bloomberg
The political crisis that split Ukraine’s government and delayed billions of dollars in aid has ended, eliminating the risk of snap elections, according to the nation’s prime minister, Volodymyr Groysman, Bloomberg reports.
“The political crisis is over,” Groysman said, according to Bloomberg. “We need to work on parliament’s consolidation and its ability to adopt necessary decisions. I don’t see a risk of early elections and I don’t see any need for them.”
The prime minister has added that any remnants of the trouble exist only inside the heads of opponents seeking to destabilize the country.
