Pavlo Bukin had worked for Ukroboronprom before this, in 2012-2013 as deputy head. In 2017, there was a scandal involving Bukin due to his salary. In his e-declaration, the official noted that his salary grew by 44% in a month and amounted to $21,200.

As reported earlier, Volodymyr Groysman asked Romanov to quit by his own initiative and criticized Ukroboronprom ex-head for not paying up shipyards’ staff salaries. The deadline for the debt repayment was December 25, the Prime Minister reminded. Consequently, the President decided to sign the papers on Romanov’s resignation on Feb. 12.
