The deputy of the Verkhovna Rada published on Thursday in Telegram that talks are being held between the government and Parliament so that Reznikov can head the justice agency.
However, Goncharenko said he was unaware of who would be the next candidate for the position as Minister of Defense, as well as the possible causes for Reznikov’s replacement.
Ukrainian law enforcement reported earlier Bogdan Khmelnitsky, former head of the Defense Ministry’s Department of State Procurement, was charged with corruption due to the purchase of low-quality “bulletproof” vests.
Ukraine has launched a large-scale process to replace several officials in important positions, including ministers, heads of regions and advisers, due to the high degree of corruption in the government, among other reasons. llp/jf/gfa
