KIEV, November 8 /TASS/. The Ukrainian government will discuss the pending resignation of Mikheil Saakashvili, Governor of Ukraine’s Odessa Region, on Wednesday, Ukrainian Vice-Premier Pavel Rozenko told journalists on Tuesday.
"As far as I understand, the government is going to deliberate on this issue at its meeting tomorrow for it is the government who should officially recommend that the Ukrainian president dismiss Saakashvili," he explained.
Mikheil Saakashvili, Governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region, announced his resignation on November 7. He pinned his decision to step down on the fact that he found it impossible to combat corruption, which was said to be traced to top officials in the executive branch including President Poroshenko himself.
Accordingly, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko is expected to accept his resignation. The presidential press service assumes that Poroshenko will sign Saakashvili’s resignation request, if he receives recommendations from the government. However, Ukraine’s cabinet of ministers has not received any statements from Saakashvili so far.
