Ternopil Oblast Governor Volodymyr Trush has been dismissed, Taras Melnychuk, the government's representative in parliament, announced on Dec. 27.

Melnychuk did not provide a reason for the dismissal and Trush has not yet released a statement.  

Trush became governor of Ternopil Oblast, which is situated in the west of Ukraine, in March 2020.

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) detained two of his deputies and the head of the Ternopil Oblast council, Mykhailo Holovko, for accepting a bribe in June.

According to the investigation, the suspects demanded almost Hr 2.4 million ($63,500) from a businessman for constructing and repairing infrastructure in the region.

Trush denied his involvement and it is unclear whether his dismissal is related to the case.
