who was immediately named first depu minister for industrial policy.

The new economics minister is Viktor Suslov, a Socialist who headed Parliaments Finance and Banking

Other appointments include Serhy Tyhypko as depu prime minister for economic affairs and Stanislav
Yanko as coal industry minister. Retaining their posts were Foreign Minister Hennady Udovenko, Finance
Minister Ihor Miukov, Defense Minister Oleksandr Kuzmuk and Interior Minister Yury Kravchenko, the
presidential press service said.

Kuchma and Pustovoitenko have promised to finalize the Cabinet roster this week.

Pustovoitenko was named o weeks ago to replace Pavlo Lazarenko, who quit under pressure from
Kuchma. In a year in the top government post, Lazarenko came to symbolize the bureaucracy and
corruption that have smied reforms and kept Ukraines economy from improving.

Kuchma told Parliament last week that he hopes the new government team will stop the countrys economic
crisis and that Ukrainian citizens will see real changes in the near future.

But opposition leaders reiterated Friday that they doubt the situation will improve soon.

This team cannot do something to improve Ukraines economy, said Petro Simonenko, the Communist
leader. We must break the practice of shuffling the same pack of ministers and announce that our
economic policy already doesnt exist.

Meanwhile, Vyacheslav Chornovil, leader of the nationalist Rukh par, accused the government of
lurching leward, in particular by replacing Yekhanurov with Suslov at the head of Economics Ministry.
This was the pay for several dozen le-wing votes and the decisive vote of [Socialist Parliament Speaker]
Oleksandr Moroz backing Valery Pustovoitenko for prime minister, Chornovil said in a statement issued

In other Cabinet appointments, Yury Karasyk was named agriculture minister and Oleksy Sheberstov
energy minister. Both men are reclaiming posts they have held in past governments.
