Ukraine Prime Minister ousted, President seeks ‘new brains’

KYIV, UKRAINE (AP) — Ukrainian lawmakers overwhelmingly voted on Wednesday to accept the resignation of the nation’s Prime Minister after a six-month tenure in which his performance came under severe criticism from President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. The President’s Servant of the People party dominates the Ukrainian Parliament and took the lead in relieving Oleksiy Honcharuk of his post. Forty lawmakers abstained from the vote but the message of the 353-0 tally was clear. Lawmakers later approved Deputy Prime Minister Denys Shmygal to be the new Prime Minister.
