Acting head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine, Oleksandr Vlasov, wrote a resignation letter, as it was earlier demanded by the President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vlasov announced this on his Facebook page.
"Dear Mr. President! I came home. I keep to my word as an officer. Respecting you as Supreme Commander, the guarantor of the Constitution of Ukraine, I am writing for a resignation from the position of head of the State Fiscal Service," the message reads.
Vlasov added that on Monday, July 15, he would send this letter to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
As it was reported, President Zelensky demanded from the acting head of the Fiscal Service Vlasov to resign. The head of state explained his demand by the fact that Vlasov did not dismiss the heads of customs in four regions - Volyn, Zakarpattia, Lviv and Chernivtsi, as the president demanded during a meeting in Uzhgorod on July 6. The post of the Vlasov in the social network about their dismissal turned out to be false.
Earlier, Volodymyr Zelensky fired 70 heads of district administrations in eight regions of Ukraine on July 9. Zelensky dismissed 10 heads of district state administrations in Vinnytsia region, 8 – in Volyn region, 3 – in Donetsk region, 1 – in Dnipro region, 2 – in Zhytomyr region, 3 – in Zakarpattia region, 10 – in Kirovohrad region and 5 – in Lviv region.
