The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv stated that they are closely watching the ongoing developments in the story with Ulyana Suprun; as is known, the Ukrainian official has been removed from the office of Acting Health Minister. This is mentioned in the tweet by the U.S. Embassy.
'We join Ukrainian citizens and colleagues from other diplomatic missions in closely monitoring this concerning situation', the message says.
British Ambassador Judith Gough also expressed concerns over this decision of the Ukrainian court. 'Still awaiting further details on this case, but concerned about the potential impact on Ukraine's vital healthcare reforms', she posted on her Twitter account.
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.
