KIEV, October 10. /TASS/. The Ukrainian information agency Glavkom has reported Friday with reference to sources close to the administration of the Ukrainian president that after early election to the Ukrainian Rada, Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov might be appointed Secretary of the Ukrainian Security Council, and Defense Minister Valeriy Heletey, will move to the State Guard Department.
Earlier, Turchynov had been considered a candidate for the post of the Ukranian defense minister with a status of a vice-premier in charge of law enforcers, Glavkom said.
Glavkom expects reshuffle in the defense ministry as well. Defense Minister Heletey might move to a job at the State Guard Department where he had worked under former president Viktor Yushchenko.
It was not ruled out that the post of the defense minister might be given to one of the commanders currently working in the zone of the anti-terrorist operation, Glavkom said.
