Court banned Suprun from “acting within the competence of Health Minister of Ukraine” including the authorities of the deputies to sing the documents instead of her, as Ulyana Suprun reported on her Facebook page.
Suprun informed that she cannot implement the following authorities: “Coordinate and present bills, presidential and governmental enactments, developed by the central executive bodies, the work of which is coordinated by the Minister for the consideration of the Cabinet of Minister; issue orders and assignments concerning the questions within the competence of such establishments compulsory for the central executive authorities; present the Ministry of Health in public-legal relationship in Ukraine and abroad; decide on distribution of budget means (Health Ministry is the chief controller); give instructions compulsory for public servants and workers of Health Ministry; sign the orders of Health Ministry, including agreeing on the bills of other central executive authorities.”
Moreover, Suprun cannot sign orders on customs clearance of the drugs and treatment abroad. This means that the health of Ukrainians is in danger now. She invites everyone to the court to support her. On February 11, the court would consider this case and decide whether to return Suprun to her work.
As we reported, Suprun's role as acting health minister was questioned by MP from the Radical Party of Lyashko Ihor Mosiychuk. The court explained that such a decision was made as Suprun has dual citizenship. Apart from the Ukrainian one, she also has a U.S. passport.
The government of Ukraine expressed the support of Suprun, as well as the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, did.
