KIEV, October 28. /TASS/.The Ukrainian Justice Ministry has published a list of state officials on Tuesday who were ordered to leave their jobs under a bill on lustration which came into force on October 16.
The ministry released the names of 179 victims of the lustration bill on its website who had occupied positions on different levels of management structures with detailed information about every government employee's last job, reasons for lustration and date of dismissal.
The bill on lustration, adopted by the Ukrainian Rada a month before it came into force on October 16, applies to all government employees and workers of local governments who had occupied state posts since February 25, 2010 until February 22, 2014 when former president Viktor Yanukovych was in power.
The lustration bill also applies to government employees, workers of law enforcement agencies, senior officials of local governments presumed to have jeopardized the life, health and property of Euromaidan supporters, officials who had occupied senior posts in the former Soviet Communist party and in the Soviet young communist league until August 19, 1991, political propagandists of the former Soviet armed forces and the Soviet Interior Ministry, former security service agents and people involved in political persecution of participants in the Ukrainian national liberation movement during WWII and in the post-war period.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said earlier that the bill applies to a million of state officials of different ranks.
