July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Ryan Chilcote reports on what comes next for Ukraine as Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk announces his resignation after the collapse of his coalition. He speaks on “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

What options do we have now?

That was the jury comments of the israeli prime minister who resigned yesterday.

Ryan chilcote joins us from the london news bureau.

What are their options in kiev for what remains of the government?

We have two things.

One, the ruling coalition collapsed.

That may have been orchestrated.

The collapse of the ruling coalition clears the way for an early parliamentary election.

That is what all of the politicians wanted.

The more worrisome thing is the ukrainian prime minister.

He made a very emotional speech and says he is resigning and stepping down.

He does not need to do that.

Typically, he would stay in power until the new parliament comes in.

You are so good at this.

When mr.

Biden flies to kiev, this is the guy he wants to speak to.

Do we have a dialogue with the guy who is a follow-on on from the previous corruption?

We do.

Everyone was used to dealing with the guy who did the $17 billion deal.

This is the guy who has been driving those reforms that the ims has been demanding.

He was unable to do that.

That is why he is resigning.

This could be indicative of a risk that would be worrisome.

He would be on the same page and they are fighting a war now.

The answer is, yes, there's a little bit of a dialogue now.

But everyone is a little more comfortable with being a technocrat.

What sort of mandate does mr.

Poroshenko have on the western side of the country now?

He has a pretty strong mandate.

Everybody has backed that revolution and backed the former president's overthrow.

They wanted to do parliamentary elections, which they have not gotten.

That was promised.

What he is trying to do is consolidate his power by giving the people those elections they were seeking.

Why?

Because there are a lot of people who supported the ousted president.

Many of these people see these people as evil, having given permission to the police.

That is what is going on.

Thank you so much.

We appreciate your perspective.

Mr.

chilcote will join us in the 7:00 hour as well.
