Ukraine's parliament approved business lobbyist Anatoly Kinakh as the country's new prime minister. Parliament voted 239 to 2, with 12 abstentions, to approve Kinakh, the nominee of President Leonid D. Kuchma. Kinakh needed at least 226 votes in the 450-member parliament. The remaining members didn't vote. The narrow vote could spell trouble for Kinakh's relations with parliament. Kinakh heads Ukraine's Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.

MOSCOW -- Beleaguered Ukrainian President Leonid D. Kuchma, accused by the U.S. of approving the sale of early warning radar to Iraq, on Saturday fired his country's prime minister and government. Kuchma has been embroiled in successive political scandals in recent years. His decision to replace the prime minister, Anatoly Kinakh, with a tough regional governor was seen by analysts as an effort to stave off his current political problems and regain control.
