KIEV, February 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Yulia Kovaliv said on Thursday she was going to resign after her boss, Aivarus Abromavicius, and two his deputies declared they were stepping down.
"Six months ago, I joined his [Abromavicius’] team of reformers because I shared its values," she wrote on her Twitter account. "Regrettably, the strategic principles of economic development offered by our team are stuck," she admitted.
On Wednesday, two other deputy economy ministers - Yulia Klimenko and Maxim Nefedov - said they were stepping down after Minister Abromavicius had announced his resignation, accusing Igor Kononenko, a member of parliament from the Poroshenko Bloc party, of corruption and attempts to obstruct the reforms.
Following these resignation moves, Ukraine’s Trade Representative Natalia Mikolska, who is also deputy economic development minister, declared her resignation.
