Venediktova dismissed as Prosecutor General of Ukraine

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has dismissed Iryna Venediktova from her post as Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

The relevant statement was made by Member of Parliament David Arakhamia on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has voted for the termination of powers of Iryna Venediktova as Prosecutor General of Ukraine,” Arakhamia wrote.

He added that Venediktova would remain part of the team and urged the general public not to listen to the rumors spread due to rotations in executive authorities.

“Iryna Venediktova will remain part of the team. Her experience will serve the state at a new place, which needs to be reinforced with competent managers and employees. We are waiting for news about personnel appointments on the diplomatic front, and thank you for your work,” Arakhamia noted.

A reminder that earlier the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine dismissed Ivan Bakanov from his post as Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine.
