Ukraine’s Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk said on Friday morning he has submitted his resignation.

This announcement comes days after Honcharuk was caught on tape saying the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, knows nothing about the economy.

Earlier this week, an audio recording surfaced in which Honcharuk appeared to make disparaging comments about Zelensky’s understanding of economics.

AFP reported that his resignation had been confirmed by the Ukraine presidential office.

Honcharuk said that the recording was a compilation of “fragments of recorded government meetings” and blamed unidentified “influential groups” for making it look like he doesn’t respect the president.

“It is not true,” the PM insisted.

On Thursday, MPs from the opposition party Opposition Platform-For Life asked for Honcharuk’s resignation, saying he and his cabinet had discredited the president and exacerbated the country’s economic crisis. Members of the ruling Servant of the People party said there were no grounds for Honcharuk to resign.

The Ukrainian parliament must vote on whether to accept the prime minister’s resignation.
