Executive Director of Naftogaz-Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko

Naftogaz-Ukraine has decided to dismiss its executive director Yuriy Vitrenko who has been involved with legal actions against the Russian Gazprom in recent years. He wrote about this on his Facebook page.

"I have just been formally warned that my position will be discharged, and this means that I will be fired from Naftogaz in two months," Vitrenko stated.

He believes that his dismissal is caused by the fact that "the fight against Russian aggression, in particular the effective protection of Ukraine's interests in relations with Gazprom, is not a priority now."

Vitrenko also stressed that the decision to reduce his position had been made by chairman of the board Andriy Kobolev.

As we reported earlier, the Supervisory Board of Naftogaz-Ukraine appointed Otto Waterlander to the post of Chief Executive Officer.

Otto Waterlander has intensified and actually restarted the transformation process of the Naftogaz Group for the time that he joined our team. He has proved that global corporate solutions and standards can and should work in a Ukrainian state-owned company. Therefore, we expect that with new Otto’s authority will help Naftogaz become a partner for the shareholder and business, who is a true lawmaker of new work standards,” Andriy Kobolev, chairman of the board of Naftogaz-Ukraine, noted.
