Ukraine’s parliament on Thursday approved its speaker, Volodymyr Hroisman, as the country’s new prime minister.

It paves the way for a new government in the biggest shake-up since the 2014 uprising brought in a pro-Western leadership.

“I will show you what leading a country really means,” Hroisman said ahead of the vote, which also finalised the resignation of Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk.

He added that Ukraine must be taken out of crisis, and the path towards integration with Europe secured.

The nomination of Hroisman, an ally of President Petro Poroshenko, was approved by 257 MPs, well over the minimum 226 required.
