Kryshchenko thanked the policemen for their work claiming he was proud of it. At that, he never specified the reason why he would resign.
Andriy Kryshchenko served in this office since 2015. Prior to that, he chaired the Main Department of Interior Affairs in Kharkiv (2015), and the Organized Crime Unit in Donetsk region.
The information about his resignation appeared on August 10, but Interion Minister Denys Monastyrsky denied it.
Earlier, we reported that shooting of music video took place at Sofiyska square in the downtown Kyiv. Sport cars drifted around Bohdan Khmelnytsky monument - out in the open, withour proper approval from the local authorities. Former Ecology Minister Ihor Shevchenko reported that on Facebook.
"How do you like such a race on Sofiyska street at 7.30 a.m.?! Managers of Sofia Kyivska memorial site approved that - for a price, of course. The locals are shocked!", reads the description.
No fence was set on site, so all pedestrians who passed by were in danger. Traces from the car tires contaminated the path on historical square.
Singer Alyona Alyona was behind the wheel in one of these cars; it is unclear if it was music video for one of her songs or a promo video for some other project.
