During an extraordinary meeting on January 21, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved a draft order dismissing Vitalii Nemilostivy, Deputy Minister for Strategic Industries, in accordance with the submitted application.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal stressed that the Government should not employ persons who do not respect the laws of Ukraine and hide behind their official position.
"The behavior that the Deputy Minister displayed is unacceptable. Everyone must be equal before the law. Therefore, we promptly considered the issue of dismissal of the Deputy Minister. A position in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine is not a privilege, it is first and foremost a responsibility to the people and the country," the Prime Minister stressed.
