The Fokin Government was the first Cabinet of Ministers appointed in independent Ukraine (1990-1991) that was reformed out of the existing Council of Ministers of Ukrainian SSR on April 18, 1991.

Brief scope[edit]

On June 13, 1990 Verkhovna Rada of Ukrainian SSR acknowledged through its declaration the petition of the Council of Ministers of Ukrainian SSR about its resignation because of reelections to Verkhovna Rada. The council, however was authorized to continue to perform its duties until the new government would be formed. The new chairman of the government was appointed on June 28. Initially the government was headed by Vitaliy Masol, however he was forced to resign due to heavy student's manifestations in Kiev.[1] In November 1990 the new chairman was appointed Vitold Fokin who replaced the acting chairman Kostyantyn Masik.

In July 16, 1990 the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine, after which on July 18 were appointed three chairman's deputies. However, it was not until July 25 when the first members of new council were appointed. The process of confirming the ministerial positions stretched until August 3, 1990.

On April 18, 1991 the Council of Ministers was replaced with the Cabinet of Ministers. Offices of chairman and his deputies became offices of Prime Minister and his vice-ministers. There also was introduced a new special position of state minister, which however was liquidated on February 25, 1992. On February 25 the whole cabinet was reconstructed and reshuffled.
