President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has dismissed Yevhen Perelyhin from his post as Ukraine's ambassador to Italy, Malta, and San Marino. A relevant decree №275/2020 has been published on the President's website.
"To dismiss Perelyhin Yevhen Yuriiovych from the post of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the Italian Republic, as well as from the post of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the Republic of Malta, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the Republic of San Marino," the statement said.
The President also removed Perelyhin from the post of Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) at the UN.
It should be noted that Perelyhin has been the ambassador to Italy since 2012.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian ambassador Ivan Kuleba has been summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia, as the Ukrainian side stated tension on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Last weekend, Azerbaijan and Armenia reported an armed collision on their common border. Major General of Azerbaijan's army lost his life in that fight, while Armenia lost two officers as well.
