Ukrainian Finance Minister resigns-statement
KIEV Feb 12 (Reuters) - Veteran Finance Minister Viktor Pynzenyk, at odds with Ukraine's prime minister over the budget, tendered his resignation on Thursday, saying he had become a "hostage to politics" and could no longer continue in the job.
"In current conditions, the professional job of finance minister has become a hostage to politics," Pynzenyk said in a statement to parliament appearing on his ministry's website.
"The finance minister cannot change the situation. Nor can he walk away from his professional actions."
