The Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of Ukraine will study the legal grounds for the dismissal of the director of the Odesa Art Museum Oleksandr Roitburd.
“The Ministry’s lawyers will analyze the relevant decision of the Odesa Regional Council and carefully find out what are the legal grounds for the removal of a well-known artist from his post. After a thorough examination of the issue, the Ministry will act within its competence to resolve a conflict situation that has significant public resonance.”
The Odesa Regional Council early terminated the contract with the director of the Odesa Art Museum, the famous artist Oleksandr Roitburd.
The issue was put on the agenda at the suggestion of MP Oleksiy Kobylnikov. He stated that Roitburd ignored parliamentary inquiries about the museum’s financial activities and “mocked” them.
