A logical measure as to the future rate of change and reform in Ukraine could be ascertained by its choice of next next prime minister - a reformer or one of the "system".
When Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk tendered his resignation last Sunday after a long period of frustration and many impediments, including corruption, to enacting real reforms in Ukraine; his action set in motion a process that could ultimately decide when Ukraine would reach its goal to European integration.
Mired in economic woes, Russian-backed separatists in the east, Russian annexation of Crimea, corruption and cronyism, Ukraine is still trying to rehabilitate from its pre and post Soviet eras of overt political favoritism to accommodate a mere basic level of government functioning. Ukrainians rejected this style of government as they amassed in affirmation of reform at the Maidan in 2013-14.
However, the intents of the youth who gathered under nature's elements in the Winter of 2013-14 at the Maidan, remain more vocal today than any real reform and change in Ukraine. Therefore, in the place of new prime minister, Ukraine should pick a reformer over a "system" candidate in order to remain true to the affirmation of the people to integrate with Europe.
Ukraine Reformist Member of Parliament, Serhiy Lenshenko, has cautioned that picking parliament speaker, Volodymyr Groysman, would mean "business as usual". According to a BBC-News report, Lenshenko described Groysman as "a product of the system." The reformist has called for greater reforms noting that today in Ukraine "...we see everything as it was in Yanukovych's time", referring the former corrupt President Viktor Yanukovych, who fled Kiev in 2014.
Yet, the choice of prime minister and the rate of change in Ukraine, rest with the people and should Ukrainians for change not accept any new named prime minister, they are expected to manifest their opposition to the government.
