KIEV Jan 28 (Reuters) - Ukraine's first deputy prime minister, Serhiy Arbuzov, will take over as acting prime minister after the resignation of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov earlier on Tuesday, Azarov's spokesman said.

Arbuzov, 37, is a former central bank chief who is personally close to the Yanukovich family.
