Dismissal of Naftogaz leadership poses real questions – British ambassador

British Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons believes that the dismissal of the management of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine raises questions.

She wrote this on her Twitter account.

"The dismissal of the Naftogaz leadership poses real questions. To convince potential British investors to come to Ukraine, corporate governance in SOEs must become more transparent and independent of political influence," the ambassador said.

As reported, on April 28, the Cabinet of Ministers dismissed Andriy Kobolyev as CEO of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine and appointed Yuriy Vitrenko to replace him.

The United States expressed deep concern by the Ukrainian government’s actions to replace the management of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, calling it “calculated move – using a procedural loophole”.
