“Secretary of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine considers the submission of the Head of Apparatus of Prime Minister toward the appointment of Sergey V. Aleksashenko as the advisor of the Prime Minister of Ukraine on a voluntary basis,” the message said.
Oleksiy Honcharuk noted in the comment to Slidstvo. Info that the appointment of the citizen of Russia as the advisor is very risky and needs the consultation of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). However, according to the premier, it is too early to talk about such an appointment.
“I do not want to comment on it because there is nothing to comment on yet. I do not have such advisor,” Honcharuk said.
Aleksashenko is a citizen of Russia. In 1993-1995, he occupied the position of the Deputy Finance Minister of Russia. At the end of the 1990s, he was the first deputy of the chairman of the Central Bank of Russia. He worked in the Russian Rosbank and holding company Interros. Since 2014 he lives in the U.S. In 2015, Sergey Aleksashenko called himself a refugee when he explained his departure for America. He also criticized the Russian state institutes and actions of Vladimir Putin at the post of the president.
Aleksashenko stated that Russia violated the system of the international assurances, which were given to Ukraine on its territory integrity by seizing Crimea. Besides, it violated the balance existing in Europe and other regions of the world toward the absence of wars in their territories.
Earlier Honcharuk stated that the Cabinet of Minister postponed the imposing of fines for owners of cars with European license plates for violation of the term of customs regime until 2020.
