KIEV, May 18. /TASS/. Western specialists have started leaving Ukraine’s government. The Ukrainska Pravda news website reported on Monday that Estonian Jaanika Merilo had suspended cooperation with the country’s Economy Ministry, led by Aivaras Abromavicius.
Merilo, who was appointed adviser to Abromavicius in January, left her post in April, the site said.
Last week, the Economy Ministry announced termination of ties with economic analyst Sasha Borovik, who was nominated for the position of the first deputy minister in February.
It also became known last week that US Senator John McCain rejected the offer to join Ukraine's International Advisory Council on Reforms, headed by Georgia’s former President Mikheil Saakashvili.
Three ministers of foreign citizenship are currently holding leading positions in Ukraine’s government. These are US-born Natalie Jaresko, who has been appointed finance minister, Lithuania's Aivaras Abromavicius, economy minister, and Aleksandr Kvitashvili, from Georgia, heading the Health Ministry. All three were granted Ukrainian citizenship by President Petro Poroshenko before the vote in the parliament that installed them in December.
