Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has dismissed Vadym Prystaiko from the post of Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and appointed Olha Stefanishyna (not an MP of Holos faction Olha Anatoliivna Stefanishyna - 112 International). The online broadcast was provided by 112 Ukraine TV channel.

Vadym Prystaiko is expected to head one of Ukraine's foreign diplomatic missions - he may be appointed as Ukraine's ambassador to Britain.

Prystaiko is a career diplomat, served as ambassador to Canada before joining the government, headed a mission to NATO, and was deputy and first deputy foreign minister.

Stefanishyna is an international lawyer and a specialist in European law. After resigning from the Government Office for Coordination of European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, she worked in the legal business.

As we reported earlier, Deputy Head of the Servant of the People faction Yevhenia Kravchuk has recently announced changes in the composition of the government and parliamentary committees.

"We have been informed that Vadym Prystaiko will be sent to work as Ukraine's ambassador to the United Kingdom. On the one hand, this is a loss for the Cabinet of Ministers, but we are forced to do so, given the transformations that are currently taking place in the European Union," she said.
