Ukraine'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. The usually mild-mannered Yatseniuk bellowed at politicians before tendering his resignation on Thursday, saying politicians had failed to pass laws to take control over an increasingly precarious energy situation and to increase army funding. Yatseniuk is a member of the Batkivshchyna party led by Tymoshenko, who was defeated by Poroshenko in a presidential election in May.
