The position of the head of the Presidential Administration is expressly stated in the law on lustration, therefore the person appointed to this position must comply with the norms of this law. The deputy minister of justice Serhii Petukhov wrote it on his Facebook page.

“The status of this position according to the Law on Public Service does not matter, because the relevant Law on the Purification of Government clearly names this position and does not refer to the law on public service. Also, judges and prosecutors who are subject to restrictions are not civil servants,” he wrote.
