Under Cabinet picket for the appointment of the head of Gosgeonadzor

Под Кабмином прошел пикет из-за назначения руководителя Госгеонедр

Social activists, representatives of the geological sector of Ukraine staged a protest under the walls of the government for what, in their opinion, the Ministry of environment is trying illegally, out of the competition to appoint the head of Gosgeonadzor.

Under the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, they held a symbolic action “the Funeral of Gosgeonadzor of Ukraine”. According to activists, in fact the backroom appointment of the head of Gosgeonadzor can lead literally to the death of the entire industry.

The picketers voiced the demand to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groisman. “We demand from 1 may to immediately start an open and transparent tender procedure for the position of head of the State service of Geology and mineral resources of Ukraine”, – said the representative of the Public Association “Ecology and mineral resources of Ukraine” Sergey Ivanov.

We will remind that recently the Public Council of the State service of Geology and mineral resources of Ukraine has opposed the appointment of the head of the service Mykola Fascia. This is stated in an open letter to the public to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister of ecology and the heads of parliamentary factions comprising the coalition.
