“The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has dismissed acting Head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine Myroslav Prodan due to his own will and announced a tender to select the head of the authority, acting Finance Minister of Ukraine”, Oksana Markarova has said, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“The issue that we have already discussed for a long time is the holding of a tender for the position of the head of the State Fiscal Service. The holding of an open and transparent tender is very important for further reform, including the State Fiscal Service reform. The government today decided to start and announce the tender,” she said after a government meeting on Wednesday.
Makarova also said that Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman instructed the National Service for State Governance and the Ministry of Finance to begin procedures for holding the tender.
“To avoid conflicts of interest, the acting head of the State Fiscal Service decided to resign due to his own will. The government backed this decision. Before the tender, Oleksandr Vlasov will act as head of the State Fiscal Service,” she said, adding that Vlasov headed the Phantom special unit of tax police for three years.
