The Justice Ministry of Ukraine will appeal against the court decision to remove Ulyana Suprun from the office of Acting Minister of Healthcare. Pavlo Petrenko, the Justice Minister posted that on Facebook.

'The absurd and irresponsible rulings of the Ukrainian courts will not prevent Ulyana from doing her job. The decision of the district administrative court of Kyiv will be appealed immediately', the message says.

Petrenko called Suprun the reform-minded person who has challenged the system for the first time in the country's history. Among her achievements, he called the struggle with the underhanded mechanisms of drugs procurement, the medical reform and the 'Accessible Medicines' program. 

Earlier on Tuesday, February 5, Kyiv District Court has prohibited Ulyana Suprun from exercising the power of Ukraine’s Health Minister, as the court’s decision says. It was published by Ukrainian MP Igor Mosiychuk on his Facebook page. 'The first Deputy of Ukraine’s Health Minister Ulyana Suprun is banned from performing any actions within the competence of Ukraine’s Health Minister,' the court ruled.
