Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk addresses parliament in KievUkraine's parliament said on Friday it had yet to receive a resignation letter from Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk so could not vote on whether to accept it or not, stalling work at the heart of government. Yatseniuk, Ukraine's point man for the West during much of the turmoil in the country since November, tendered his resignation on Thursday, saying parliament was betraying its people's demands for change by failing to pass legislation. The move by Yatseniuk, an ally of former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, could hamstring decision-making as Ukraine struggles to fund a war against pro-Russian rebels and deals with the aftermath of a passenger plane crash. The chamber's deputy speaker, Bohdan Koshulynsky, confirmed he had yet to receive Yatseniuk's resignation.
