Two ministers are expected to be fired from the government in the nearest future, Ukrainian media outlet Ukrainska Pravda reported on Jan. 30, citing unnamed sources.
According to the publication, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Vadym Gutzeit, and the Minister of Strategic Industries, Pavlo Riabikin, are due to be dismissed.
Ukrainska Pravda's sources say that Riabikin could be fired only to be appointed as Ukraine's ambassador to China. Meanwhile, Gutzeit could lose his job due to the Youth and Sports Ministry's liquidation. The ministry is expected to be merged with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, according to the report.
The Ukrainska Pravda report comes shortly after a number of officials were dismissed in the biggest government reshuffle in Ukraine since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion nearly a year ago.
