Anatoliy Kinakh (born August 4, 1954) is a Ukrainian politician. Currently, Anatoliy Kinakh is a deputy in the newly elected parliament as well as the leader of Party of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Ukraine. Previously, Anatoliy Kinakh was a Prime Minister, a first vice-Prime Minister, and a Minister of Economics of Ukraine.
In April 1990 he was elected to the Parliament of Ukraine: Verkhovna Rada. There he worked in a committee dealing with economic reforms. In 1992 Kinakh was appointed as representative of the President in Mykolaiv Oblast. In 1995 Anatoliy Kinakh was appointed vice-prime minister of Ukraine concerned with industrial affairs.
From 1995 to 1996 Mr. Kinakh was the Minister of Industrial Policy.
Commonly known as an indecisive, but competent, technocrat, Mr. Kinah served as the Prime Minister of Ukraine between 2001 and 2002. His reasonably popular cabinet was unexpectedly dismissed by President Kuchma.
In 2002, he was elected to Verkhovna Rada on the list of the electoral bloc of parties "For United Ukraine!".
During the election campaign Mr. Kinakh publicly broke ties with Viktor Yanukovych by declaring that no criminal can hold the post of the President of Ukraine. He later took an active part in the Orange Revolution on the side of Viktor Yushchenko.
In March 2007 he became minister of economics in the cabinet of Viktor Yanukovych against the wish of the Our Ukraine block. The Our Ukraine faction then decided to expel Anatoliy Kinakh from the faction and President Victor Yushchenko ordered his removal from the National Security and Defense Council.
