KIEV, March 26, 19:54 /ITAR-TASS/. Oleksandr Turchynov, parliament-appointed Acting President of Ukraine, has dismissed Sergei Kunitsyn from the post of a permanent envoy of the Ukrainian president to Crimea.
Kunitsyn was dismissed for "neglecting his duties," Turchynov said in a decree on Kunitsyn's dismissal from the post.
Sergei Kunitsyn,deputy of the Ukrainian Rada from the UDAR party, was appointed to the post of the presidential envoy to Crimea on February 28, 2014. He was an advocate of hard-line politics in Crimea which he had planned to follow with the assistance of the organizations of Ukrainian Cossacks.
Kunistyn said that he was abandoning his post in a TV program "Shuster Live" on Tuesday. Kunistyn criticized the authorities in Kiev for a passive attitude to the situation in Crimea and underlined that, as a plenipotentiary envoy to Crimea, he was never invited to attend meetings of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council.
