Ukraine's parliament was weighing Tuesday whether to approve the resignation of embattled Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk as furious backroom talks raged about the makeup of a new pro-EU government.Yatsenyuk's days had seemed numbered since he survived a no-confidence vote last month that fractured the pro-Western coalition formed after a February 2014 revolution forced the ouster of Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovych.Yatsenyuk announced Sunday he was quitting the post he had held since February 2014 -- a 26-month span during which the economy imploded and a pro-Russian insurgency that has claimed nearly 9,200 lives broke out in the separatist east.Poroshenko convened his party Tuesday in a seemingly-successful bid to smooth over the differences and persuade Groysman to push ahead with his premiership candidacy.
