KIEV (Reuters) - The Ukrainian parliament voted on Thursday to dismiss Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk after he publicly fell out with the prime minister.

Danylyuk had said on Wednesday he had been asked to support “political corruption” or to quit after Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman formally asked parliament to sack him.
