Fedur thinks that the case is extremely simple: “There are no political aspects in the case”.

The lawyer noted that the lawsuit was filed on May 21 not to disrupt the inauguration of the newly elected Volodymyr Zelenksy as it took place on May 20.

According to him, the lawsuit states about the absence of any disciplinary misconducts committed by Shevchuk.

On May 14, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine dismissed Stanislav Shevchuk from the office of the Head of this authority. 12 judges, the necessary minumum to pass, voted for such decision after the Court expressed a motion of no confidence. The colleagues blamed him for making the court's work too political, the source said.

Later Natalya Shaptala was elected as the new Head of the Constitutional Court.
