Ukraine's parliament on Tuesday confirmed US national Natalia Jaresko as finance minister while handing the economy portfolio to Lithuanian investment banker Aivaras Abromavicius in a new government designed to sweep out graft.
The war-torn nation's new cabinet will also see Georgia's former health minister Alexander Kvitashvili serve the same role in the new Ukrainian government. Lawmakers had earlier agreed to keep Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin and Defence Minister Stepan Poltorakv in their posts.
