A junior ally in Ukraine's Western-backed coalition quit Wednesday, spelling more trouble for Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk's government just a day after he survived a no confidence vote in parliament.The exit of the Fatherland faction, led by former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, again raises the specter of early elections and could make it even harder for Yatseniuk to pass economic reforms demanded by Ukraine's Western creditors.Months of squabbling in the coalition came to a head of Tuesday, when President Petro Poroshenko, who leads the largest party in the alliance, openly called for Yatseniuk to resign. The coalition now contains President Petro Poroshenko's party, Yatseniuk's party and one other.
