The chairman of the Ukrainian political party Servant of the People, Oleksandr Kornienko, called the former Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov the best possible candidate for the post of mayor of Kharkiv. It is reported by “Interfax – Ukraine”.
“I don’t see a better option for Kharkiv than Arsen Borisovich. This would be the final point on the question of whether the Russian city of Kharkov or some kind of Little Russian, because it was the final point in the fact that this is a Ukrainian city, that there is a Ukrainian patriotic government, “said Kornienko.
He added that Avakov also possesses “economic qualities.”
On July 15, the Verkhovna Rada dismissed Avakov. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy proposes the candidacy of Deputy Denis Monastyrsky, head of the parliamentary committee on law enforcement, for the post of Minister of Internal Affairs.
