   KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk said on Wednesday he had been asked to support “political corruption” or to quit after Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman formally asked parliament to sack him.
   The two men have been at loggerheads since Groysman rejected Danylyuk’s candidate for deputy minister in charge of tax policy. Danylyuk then accused Groysman of favouring candidates chosen by the inner circle of President Petro Poroshenko and wrote a letter airing his grievances to the G7 group of nations.
   The timing of the spat is awkward for Ukraine, which is trying to persuade its international creditors to release another tranche under its $17.5 billion assistance programme, which has stalled. Ukrainian debt prices fell on Wednesday.
