Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk resigned after two leading political parties said they would pull out of the governing coalition.
The far right Svoboda party and the UDAR movement led by former boxer Vladimir Klitschko both pulled out of the ruling block which has governed the country since the ouster of former President Viktor Yanukovich.
Yatsenyuk said his resignation was connected to the collapse of the coalition, saying parliament could no longer carry out its work as a legislative body.
