Ukraine approves new government lineup

KIEV, Feb 27 (Reuters) - Ukraine’s parliament approved Oleksander Shlapak, a former economy minister and ex-deputy head of the central bank, as the country’s new finance minister on Thursday.

It also confirmed Andriy Deshchitsya as acting foreign minister and Ihor Tenyukh as acting defence minister - they take on their roles on an interim basis because they are named by the president but Ukraine currently has only an interim president.
