The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers dismissed Deputy Minister of Infrastructure for European Integration Oleksandra Klitina at a meeting on November 27.

The Ministry of Infrastructure announced this in a statement on November 27, the CFTS portal reports.

As reported, Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Kryklyi announced at the end of last week that he would ask the Cabinet of Ministers to dismiss Klitina. Kryklyi attributed his decision to a lack of understanding within his team, unfounded criticism of him and his team by Klitina, and Klitina’s lack of leadership qualities necessary for her post.

"Oleksandra Klitina has refused to resign in the spirit of European political tradition," Kryklyi wrote, explaining why he was forced to ask the Cabinet of Ministers to dismiss her.

As reported, Klitina was appointed as the deputy minister of infrastructure for European integration on September 18. Until her appointment, she headed the Reform Support Office at the Ministry of Infrastructure. She worked with former minister of infrastructure Volodymyr Omelian and his predecessor Andrii Pyvovarskyi, to who she was an adviser.
