 "I cannot say that I am somehow dependent on president," – PM Hroisman

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman insists that he is an independent politician and President Petro Poroshenko has no influence on his decisions.

He said in an interview with Ukrainska Pravda, Censor.NET reports.

"I cannot say that I am somehow dependent on the president or vice versa. There is good cooperation between us," he said.

"I do believe that all government officials must find a way to constructive cooperation. It is vital. I was able to work under tenure of self-perpetuating regional administration and regional council chairmen for five years. We managed to find a common ground. I am absolutely independent in my decisions, in my professional opinion," Hroisman said.
