The head of the State Agency of Ukraine for Cinema Issues Pylyp Illyenko wrote an application for dismissal at his own request. He has been the head of the State Agency since August 6, 2014.
“My mission as head of the State Agency of Ukraine for Cinema is complete …. Today, I wrote to the Prime Minister of Ukraine a statement of my own release. This will obviously allow the new government to hold an open competition in the near future and appoint a new head of industry,” Illyenko said in a video message.
He added that he plans to connect further activities with Ukrainian cinema.
