Who exactly is governing Ukraine?

Ukraine's new government are a varied lot. Made up of 21 cabinet members, many are from Arseniy Yatsenyuk's Fatherland party. A handful are drawn from the far-right nationalist Svoboda party. There is also a smattering of new faces, mainly activists who were prominent in the "Euromaidan" protests in Kiev and journalists. The Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms party of the heavyweight boxing champion-turned-politician Vitali Klitschko is not represented after it declined offers to participate in the new government.
