Бывший и нынешний министры культуры поругались из-за назначений

The members of the Cabinet at the meeting on Wednesday had a fight because of assignments

The skirmish happened at the first Cabinet meeting.

At the first meeting of the new Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has created a controversy over appointments in some ministries.

Vice Prime Minister Vyacheslav Kyrylenko said that the Minister of culture Yevhen Nyshchuk has proposed to fire three people. “All these layoffs, in my opinion, doubtful, but one particularly harmful and inefficient – about the dismissal of the Deputy Minister on European integration Andriy Vitrenko”, – he noted.

Nyshchuk noted that this place offered Svetlana Fomenko, which, according to him, is a professional. “She passed the interview with the Deputy Prime Minister for European integration Ivanna klympush-Tsintsadze, and can pass this interview on the government,” he said.

“If there is a desire to bomb completely the Ministry of culture, fire at least three of the four, but not four out of four. Needs to be motives and not just somebody’s desire”, – said Deputy Prime Minister.

He also explained that with the change of Minister, his deputies don’t quit automatically, but only on their own.

“If we say that the vendetta need each other to hold, then let us, then I accept this challenge, and we’ll arrange a vendetta at every meeting of the government on every issue. But if we, as agreed, a little walk towards each other, as I did once, then let’s take into account the positions of other members of the government,” said Kirilenko.

Nyshchuk noted that there is no “vendetta” is not, and the decision was made solely based on professional issues.

Recall, Yevhen Nyshchuk – the voice of the Maidan, for the second time after the revolution held the post of Minister of culture. Replaced on this post he just Vyacheslav Kirilenko.
