Reznikov will resign if President approves such decision

Ukrainian Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov has said that he will resign if President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky approves such a decision.

The minister said this at a press conference in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"No official remains in office forever. No one. The decision whether I remain minister of defense or not is made by one person - the Supreme Commander-in-Chief and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, according to the Constitution. He submits a proposal for appointment, and the Verkhovna Rada appoints. Therefore, only by the decision of the President of Ukraine, I will make certain decisions, and then I will do what the head of state suggests to me," Reznikov said.

As reported, amid a series of scandals in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, rumours circulated  about possible resignation of Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov.
