President Volodymyr Zelensky formally appointed Serhii Tiurin as the governor of Khmelnytskyi Oblast, according to a presidential decree dated May 2.

Tiurin has served as the acting head of the central-western Ukrainian region since the dismissal of his predecessor, Serhii Hamalii, in March 2023.

Hamalii was fired along with two other regional governors. His dismissal was preceded by a case of being allegedly stopped by the police for driving under the influence of alcohol.

The Ukrainian government backed Tiurin's formal appointment in February.

The governor previously worked as a lawyer and was appointed a deputy head of Khmelnytskyi Oblast's administration in 2021.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
