Ukraine government to verify 1 mn civil servants loyalty

Kiev: One million civil servants in Ukraine will be screened for their loyalty to the new government, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said.

The parliament passed a new law Tuesday, allowing the vetting of government officials and the removal of corrupt officials, BBC reported Wednesday.

Yatseniuk said all departments who worked under former president Viktor Yanukovych would be vetted.

"One million civil servants of different kinds will come under this law, including the whole cabinet of ministers, the interior ministry, the intelligence services, the prosecutor's office," Yatseniuk said in a cabinet meet.

In a separate development, MP Vitaly Zhuravsky, who belongs to a party described as pro-Russian, was thrown by angry crowds into a bin outside the parliament.

Ukraine has had months of unrest since Yanukovych was ousted in February.

Government troops had been fighting pro-Russia separatists in the east for months, until a truce was signed Sep 5.
