The Ukrainian Parliament approved on Friday the expelling of the Foreign Minister, Boris Tarasiuk, an ally of president Viktor Yushchenko and a pro-Western and pro- NATO militant.

In order to avoid string being pulled too far, the expelling was also applied for the Interior Minister, although this measure might cause a PM - president crisis.

The vote came a few days after the Foreign Minister Tarasiuk tried to cancel the PM’s the visit to US.
