The Groysman government was formed on 14 April 2016, led by Volodymyr Groysman.[2][3] It was the third Ukrainian cabinet formed since the 2014 Ukrainian revolution, following on from the first and second Yatsenyuk governments.



On 10 April 2016 Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced that he would resign as Prime Minister and would ask parliament to fire him on 12 April 2016.[4] On 25 March 2016 Parliamentary Speaker Volodymyr Groysman had been nominated by coalition partner Petro Poroshenko Bloc to replace Yatsenyuk.[4][5] On 12 April parliament did not hold a vote on Yatsenyuk's resignation, because (Yatsenyuk's party) People's Front and Petro Poroshenko Bloc could not agree on the forming of a new government.[6] On 14 April Groysman was confirmed by the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) as Prime Minister.[7]

As Petro Poroshenko Bloc and People's Front together lacked a parliamentary majority (and a couple of both parties' parlamentariens voted "against" the Groysman government) the government creation became possible because almost all MP's of Revival and People's Will voted for the establishment of the coalition.[8]
