The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers has appointed Yevhen Kuzkin as the acting head of the State Road Agency (Ukravtodor).

This is stated in the Cabinet of Minister directive No. 488-r dated 21 May, which was published on the Government Portal, the CFTS portal reports.

"The first deputy head of Ukravtodor, Yevhen Kuzkin, has temporarily been entrusted with the performance of the duties of the head of the state agency until the head of the state agency is appointed in accordance with the established procedure," the Cabinet of Minister directive states.

Kuzkin became the first deputy head of Ukravtodor in June 2020. He headed Ukravtodor’s department of planning, finance, and accounting from November 2019 until then. He headed the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance’s department of local budgets before joining Ukravtodor.

Current Ukrainian Minister of Infrastructure Oleksandr Kubrakov has described Kuzkin as one of the key people with whom he joined Ukravtodor in 2019.

As the CFTS reported earlier, the Ukrainian parliament approved the candidacy of Kubrakov, who previously headed Ukravtodor, for the post of Ukraine’s minister of infrastructure at a session on May 20.
