Moskal submitted his resignation to current President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. He stated he wanted to resign voluntarily before his term in office expires.
“In compliance with the article no. 9 of the Law and based on the article no. 38 of Ukraine’s Labor Code I ask to suspend my vacation and dismiss me from the post of the Chairman of Zakarpattia Region State Administration on a voluntary basis,” he wrote.
Hennadiy Moskal is a politician and lawyer, general-lieutenant of police, candidate of legal sciences (2002), associate professor (2005), Ukrainian MP of VI and VII callings. In September 2014, Moskal was appointed as the Chairman of Luhansk Region State Administration, on March 5, 2015 – as the Head of Luhansk Region Civil-Military Administration. He was appointed as the Chairman of Zakarpattia Region State Administration on July 15, 2015.
Moskal “resigns” not for the first time. In May 2016, he appealed to Ukraine’s PM Volodymyr Groysman asking for resignation. He complained about “cigarette mafia.” Two days later Poroshenko had met with him, and Moskal changed his mind.
