Ukrainian diplomat Kostiantyn Yelisieiev, ex-Ambassador of Ukraine to the EU and former diplomatic advisor to the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has filed for resignation from Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry.
“I filed for resignation from the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine. I did not think this is how my 28 years diplomatic career would end this way. Thanks to all, with whom I worked for the sake of raising the international standing of Ukraine, especially to my teacher, the first head of the head of the Foreign Ministry Anatoly Zlenko,” Yelisieiev wrote.
The diplomat did not tell the reason for his resignation. At the same time, he expressed hope for his return to the Foreign Ministry in the future.
“I am hoping to return. Diplomat Yelisieiev remains!” he wrote.
As it was reported earlier, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Danulyuk wrote a letter of resignation on September 27. He prepared the proper letter addressed to the president before the beginning of the working visit of Volodymyr Zelensky to the U.S. for participation in 74th UN General Assembly. President Zelensky agreed to fire Danylyuk.
