Ukraine’s First Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister Yuliya Kovaliv has decided to follow the path of her boss Aivaras Abromavicius and his deputies Maxim Nefyodov and Yuliya Klimenko. Kovaliv made the announcement in her Twitter account.
“Half a year ago, I joined his (the minister’s) reforming team, because I was fully sharing their values,” she wrote. At the same time, she recognized that “unfortunately, the strategic foundations for economic development proposed by our team are actually stalling.”
Yesterday, Ukraine’s Trade Representative, Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister Natalyia Mykolskaya also announced she was going to resign.
Earlier on Feb 3, Aivaras Abromavicius accused one of Petro Poroshenko Bloc leaders, Ihor Kononenko, of trying to gain control over the ministry. Abromavicius announced his resignation from the minister’s post.
“My team and me are ready to resign right now. I am asking the Rada to vote for our resignation as early as tomorrow. The reason is that any significant and system reforms are being blocked in this country,” Abromavicius explained.
