Ukraine’s Minister of Economic Development and Trade Aivaras Abromavicius resigned on February 2. According to UNIAN, the decision was made due to his conflict with Ihor Kononenko, Deputy Head of Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc parliamentary faction.
“The reason of my resignation is that any systematic and essential reforms are decisively blocked. It’s not just absence of political will or support. This is about immobilizing reforms that we’ve been working hard on”, Abromavicius said.
He added that certain officials intend to set control over money flows at state-run enterprises especially those of energy and defense industry.
