The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has decided to withdraw the first secretary of the Ukrainian Embassy in Slovakia Oksana Lischishin, who became a figurant in the scandal over the smuggling of cigarettes. It was said to "Evropeyskaya pravda" from informed source in the MFA.

The ministry also confirmed the information that Lischishin suddenly went on vacation.

"The decision to grant the leave does not match the position of the MFA. Ministry of Foreign Affairs has officially adopted a radically different solution – the withdrawal of the employee from a long trip abroad. Diplomat is going to return to Ukraine instead of going on vacation", - the diplomat said.

Vacation of the first secretary of the embassy began on May 24, but she had still worked on Monday.

It is noted that the information about the scandal is absent on the website of the Embassy.
