No-Confidence Vote Passes In Ukraine

Parliament overwhelmingly passed a no-confidence vote Tuesday and demanded the government’s resignation, criticizing it for failing to reform the crisis-ridden economy.

Lawmakers approved the noconfidence resolution by a vote of 292-15, with 15 abstentions.

Parliament also accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Vitaly Masol. Masol handed in his resignation on March 1, and it had already been accepted by Ukraine President Leonid Kuchma.
