Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko has said that the resignation of Transport and Communications Minister Yosyp Vinsky is linked to ineffective government policy in the transport sector, particularly in the context of Ukraine's preparations for hosting the finals of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

"I know that the minister had this opinion - if the government's course remains unchanged in respect to the reform of the [transport] sector, and, in particular, [there is a lack of] budget attention to those problems currently facing the sector, it would be inexpedient [for him] to remain at this post," the presidential press service quoted Yuschenko as saying on Wednesday.

Yuschenko said that the question of preparing Ukraine's transport infrastructure and airports for Euro 2012 was "under serious threat."

As reported, Transport and Communications Minister Yosyp Vinsky resigned on Wednesday.

"My statement [of resignation] has been prompted by serious disagreements with Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko over political, staff, and economic issues, as well as the ethics of relations between members of the Cabinet of Ministers," he said in his resignation letter.

Moreover, he also said that the premier was blocking reforms that are extremely important for the transport sector, as well as the allocation of funds required to build infrastructure facilities linked to the holding of the Euro 2012 European Football Championship in Ukraine.
