Ukraine to form national unity government by Tuesday Updated: 2014-02-25 14:36:09 KST

Ukraine's new interim president -- Oleksander Turchinov -- expects lawmakers to vote Tuesday on a national unity government led a prime minister that is favored and trusted by the people.
The empty seats in government will likely be filled swiftly, so officials can seek economic assistance to stave off default.
Turchinov says the new government will be equipped with various tasks, such as stopping the country's slide and creating new jobs, as well as returning to the European Integration path.
He also said Ukraine is willing to build relations with Russia in a "new and fair partnership."
While work on the interim government is under way in Ukraine, Russia is questioning the legitimacy of the opposition and is continuing to denounce the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovich.
Ukraine issued an arrest warrant for Yanukovich on Monday on charges of the mass murder of citizens during protests.
Russia's Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Ukraine's interim authorities are the result of an "armed mutiny."
In the meantime, the U.S. continues to pressure Russia not to intervene in Ukraine.
On Monday, Washington also said it was ready to provide financial assistance to Kiev.
European officials are also in talks on sending financial support to the country.
Ukraine says it needs an estimated 35 billion U.S. dollars to survive the next two years.
Ukraine could have a new president by the summer after the nation's parliament decided to bump up the presidential election by almost a year to the end of May.
