Next week, president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will introduce four submissions to the Verkhovna Rada – on the dismissal of the Minister of Defense, the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, the Foreign Minister, and the Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko.

After the failure of the vote for dismissal of the head of the SBU, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Defense, the president plans to introduce four submissions, the one of which – on the dismissal of Lutsenko.

“We will show that in a situation in which today there is an absolute misunderstanding and rejection of the president’s position, the president will insist that it is within his constitutional powers, and we will expect a fruitful reaction from the Verkhovna Rada,” Ruslan Stefanchuk said.

Recall that on May 30 Zelensky submitted to the Verkhovna Rada draft statements on the dismissal of Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak and Head of the Security Service Vasyl Hrytsak.

At the June 6th sitting, deputies of the Council didn’t support these statements.
