Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman announced on Monday that he would submit his resignation this week, local media reported.

"I decided to resign immediately after the next government meeting on Wednesday," Groysman was quoted as saying by Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

Groysman said that he will focus on the preparation for the parliamentary elections after leaving the post of the prime minister.

Earlier in the day, new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky took the office, urging the current Ukrainian government to resign. Zelensky also announced that he is dissolving the parliament.

The snap parliamentary elections will be held in two months, according to a statement on the presidential website. However, the official decree on the dissolution of the parliament has not yet been unveiled.

The Ukrainian Constitution stipulates that the resignation of the prime minister results in the resignation of the entire cabinet.
