Cabinet Suggests Zelenskyy Dismiss Odesa Governor Kutsyi, Ivano-Frankivsk Governor Fedoriv, Sumy Governor Hryschenko Due To Poor Performance


The Cabinet of Ministers has approved the draft decrees of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on the dismissal of the chairmen of the Regional State Administrations of Odesa – Maksym Kutsyi, Ivano-Frankivsk – Vitalii Fedoriv, and Sumy – Roman Hryschenko, due to unsatisfactory performance.

The relevant draft decrees were approved at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal noted that the decisions also concern the efficiency of the work of the heads of regional state administrations.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on October 25, a vote in local elections took place in Ukraine.

At the end of October, commenting on the elections, the chairman of the Servant of the People party, the first deputy chairman of the faction in the Verkhovna Rada, Oleksandr Kornienko, predicted that a number of heads of regional state administrations would be replaced in the near future, but he argued that this would not be due to the party’s low score in local elections in their region, but because of the low performance indicators of their work for the year.

  • How about letting the Oblasts elect their own Governors so the Central Government has one less thing to worry about and mess up? Every president and PM since independence has promised it but none have had the nerve to give up the control.
    As it stands now, it harvests corruption and ass-kissing at a minimum. Some Oblasts criticize Kyiv and then they don’t get anything from the budget.
    Let The People fire the Governors if they want to, not the Emperor.
