It is noted that the division of the ministry is hindered by the 2020 Olympics, preparations for which should have already begun. Creating a new ministry can put an end to work. Therefore, the Office is considering splitting the ministry.
Thus, Volodymyr Borodianskyi will continue dealing with cultural issues, but the youth and sports issues are planned to be transferred to the State Sports Agency in the governance of Culture Ministry.
The department might be headed by ex-goalkeeper of Dynamo Kyiv FC and Ukraine’s national football team Oleksandr Shovkovskiy.
