Ukrainian president rejects prime minister's resignation

Ukrainian president rejects prime minister's resignationUkrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy rejected his prime minister’s offer to resign and asked him to stay on the job Friday after he was caught on tape saying Zelenskiy — a former sitcom star with no previous political experience — knows nothing about the economy. In a video released by Zelenskiy’s office, the president called the situation “unpleasant” but said he had decided to “give a chance” to Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk and his Cabinet. The furor comes at a fraught moment for Zelenskiy, who has found himself in the middle of the impeachment case unfolding against President Donald Trump in Washington.
