First Vice Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko filed a report about her dismissal from the posts of the presidential commissioner on a peaceful settlement and Ukraine’s representative in the humanitarian subgroup in Minsk, as RBK-Ukraine reported.
“Now the debates on the reboot of Minsk groups take place. I want to inform you that today I have filed the report as the commissioner of President Petro Poroshenko on peaceful settlement of Donbas Conflict and Ukraine’s representative in the humanitarian subgroup in Minsk to release from these positions. I thanked President Poroshenko for this great honor to work in his team,” Gerashchenko stated.
She also assured that she would help the new authority to facilitate the solution of the issues discussed in the format of Minsk groups.
“We remain to be open for a new authority to facilitate the solution of the issues, which will be raised in the format of Minsk groups. But obviously, the reboot should take place,” she added.
Iryna Gerashchenko was in charge of the humanitarian issues, particularly the release of the prisoners within Minsk negotiations.
Yevhen Marchuk heads the Ukrainian representative office. He replaced Leonid Kuchma on this position at the end of November 2018.
