Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has rejected his prime minister’s resignation, and asked Oleksiy Honcharuk to stay on in the job.

Mr Honcharuk submitted his resignation days after he was caught on tape saying Mr Zelenskiy knows nothing about the economy.

In a video released by Mr Zelenskiy’s office on Friday evening, the president said he decided to “give a chance” to Mr Honcharuk and his Cabinet.
