During the first meeting of the new Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk had to switch from Ukrainian to Russian, reported RIA Novosti with reference to Ukrainian media.
As noted, to make Russian a working language during the meetings of the Cabinet of Ministers Prime Minister Yatsenyuk was asked by the new Health Minister Alexander Kvitashvili, Georgian by nationality.
The public on camera portion of the meeting the head of the government, as expected, held in Ukrainian. In the course of the closed part of the meeting Yatsenyuk first switched to English, but the Ministers were not fluent in it, and the Ukrainian Prime Minister had to resort to Russian. The fact that the new head of the Ministry of Health did not quite understand his boss was revealed immediately after the public part of the meeting of the Cabinet.
So much for the new government. What would Farion have to say about that?
