Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk says he has offered his resignation to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

'In order to prevent any doubts about our respect and trust to the president, I have submitted my resignation to the president with the right to bring the issue to the parliament,' he wrote in a post on Facebook on January 17.

The move comes amid a scandal surrounding an audio recording allegedly of Honcharuk disparaging the economic knowledge and competence of both himself and the president.
