KIEV, November 14. /TASS/. Chief of Ukraine’s national police force, Khatiya Dekanoidze, has said she is stepping down due to politicians’ continued interference in her professional activities.
"My work here is done. I declare my resignation," she told a news briefing.
"I regard it as my duty to address all officials of all levels to give up interference in the operation of the national police force. Appointments of law enforcement officials must not be coordinated with politicians. Politicians must not use the law enforcement agencies for the protection of their interests. Without this understanding the country will soon be doomed to confrontation between society and the authorities again."
Dekanoidze’s first deputy, Vadim Troyan, has been appointed acting chief of the national police force. Dekanoidze has led the national police since November 4, 2015. Before she had been an adviser to Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
