KIEV, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Ukraine's government, still led by an ally of embattled President Viktor Yanukovich, said on Saturday it would ensure a smooth handover of power to a new administration.

"The cabinet of ministers and ministry of finance are working normally," the government said in a statement. "The current government will provide a fully responsible transfer of power under the constitution and legislation."
