Former Director for Business Development at the National joint-stock company Naftogaz of Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko on Monday, December 21, filed a declaration as a candidate for the post of the Deputy Minister of Energy. Last week the Verkhovna Rada failed the vote for him for the post of First Deputy Prime Minister—Minister of Energy.
We recall: on Thursday, December 17, the parliament failed the vote for Vitrenko’s appointment of Vitrenko. Only 186 deputies voted "for" despite the fact that earlier his candidacy had been approved for the Servant of the People faction. Later it became known that the deputies would again try to appoint Vitrenko as Minister in January.
