Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (CCU), Oleksandr Tupytskyi, went to work on Wednesday, October 30, despite Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s decree on suspending him from office for a two-month term. This was stated by the CCU, Ukranews reports.

"He was at work today," the statement said.

However, there no specifics on whether Tupytskyi held any meetings or conferences.

It should be noted that the Constitutional Court of Ukraine declared Zelensky's decree to remove Tupytskyi from the post of the court's chairman unconstitutional.

In their statement, the CCU representatives called the decree "insignificant", because, in their opinion, Zelensky overstepped his presidential responsibilities.

As we reported earlier, Tupytskyi's temporary removal from office was requested by the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

"He claimed he could not show up because of family matters, but he never provided any documents on the importance of reasons for failed attendance. The charge paper is being handed over on the day of composition; if it can't be handed in person, it is sent via mail on the same day," the Office's press department reported.
