At the same time, he thanked President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky for his trust and the opportunity to do good deeds every day and every minute. Tymoshenko also expressed gratitude to each head of the regional military administrations, mayors of cities, the team of the OP and, of course, the Armed Forces.
Pay attention!As noted by Babel, Tymoshenko may become the head of one of the regional military administrations, but which one is still unknown. However, People's Deputy Yaroslav Zheleznyak suggested that it was about the Kyiv OVA, which is now headed by Oleksiy Kuleba. p>According to preliminary information, Andrei Kostin himself has already signed the application for the dismissal of Alexei Simonenko from the post of Deputy Prosecutor General. It is known that Simonenko wrote this statement of his own free will after the scandal over his vacation abroad.
The journalists themselves conducted an investigation, during which it became known that Symonenko was in the Spanish municipality of Marbella during the holidays. In total, he was outside the state for 10 days, and therefore, obviously, he received a “punishment” in the form of dismissal.
On this topic, it should be said that in a recent address, President Zelensky stated that by decision of the National Security and Defense Council he was banned departure from the country to Ukrainian officials, in particular people's deputies, representatives of central and local authorities.
Shapovalov resigned after a scandal at the Ministry of Defense
Deputy head of the Ministry of Defense Vyacheslav Shapovalov was informed about the resignation in the ministry itself. This happened after a recent scandal that the Ministry of Defense is buying products for the military at inflated prices.
Despite the fact that the voiced accusations are unfounded and unfounded, Shapovalov's announcement of his dismissal is a worthy deed in the traditions of European and democratic politics, a demonstration that the interests of defense are higher than any offices or chairs, the message says.
In addition, it is noted that the official worked as responsibly as possible, but was forced to take this step in order to ensure the stable functioning of the department, the credibility of which was recently undermined by baseless accusations.
