The conflict between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov is around since the head of the state was elected. Anton Herashchenko, the MP from the People's Front faction in the Ukrainian parliament, said that on the air of one of the Ukrainian TV channels, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

"Yes, from the first day of election of Petro Poroshenko as a President of Ukraine,” he specified.

The MP believes that the basis for the conflict is in “different approach to the security issues and criminal investigations.”

“The President wants to concentrate his entire power over the law enforcement bodies in his own hands. The People's Front faction and personally I, and Arsen Avakov believe that this is a very dangerous precedent. We saw the previous president Victor Yanukovych – he had full control over the country’s security agencies and you remember what came of it.

At the same time Artur Herasymov, leader of the Petro Poroshenko faction, underlined that there is no conflict between the President and the Minister of Internal Affairs.

To recall, Arsen Avakov took the office of the Interior Minister after the Revolution of Dignity in 2014. Poroshenko allies then filled the positions of the Prosecutor General, Yury Lutsenko, and the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine, Vasyl Hrytsak, preserving the balance of the security forces of the country.
