Ukraine prepared Monday to usher in a stable new pro-Western government following the resignation of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk over public anger with his seeming inability to fight government graft.The parliamentary factions headed by Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk have been trying for weeks to muster the majority necessary to push through a new cabinet leader and form a government that could appease the other dissatisfied parties.Tymoshenko's party and other factions that also broke ranks with the government have so far been noncommittal about whether they were ready to see Groysman assume one of Ukraine's two top posts.Groysman himself warmly praised Yatsenyuk for his decision but said nothing about his own chances of becoming the next premier.The U.S.-born former State Department worker and private banker has been widely praised by the West for being able to pull together a crucial debt restructuring deal in August 2015 .Yet she is unlikely to serve under Groysman after herself volunteering for the premiership post.
