Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin announced that we would submit his resignation and intends to become a deputy of the Ukrainian Parliament (the Verkhovna Rada).
"As promised, I have submitted a resignation. On Monday, the day of the inauguration, I will send it to the Verkhovna Rada and the new President of Ukraine," said Klimkin in a video message posted on Facebook.
Klimkin also said that he is ready to help the new government in the areas of "common principles and vision."
He also noted that he will participate in the elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
"Today, the potential of our international support through politics and emotions is almost exhausted. I understand what exactly Ukrainians want, but I also understand what the world expects from us. I have a lot of different ideas, and I hope to implement them. Therefore, I go forward; I go to politics, I go to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Of course, I do that with a team of people with whom I share values, principles, emotions, and vision of how to go further. Everything else will be reported later", — said the Minister.
