Odesa Governor Supports Legitimate Transfer of Power

2014/03/01 • News

Mykola Skoryk, Head of Odesa oblast administration, made public details of his talk about the personnel changes with O. Turchynov, Acting President of Ukraine.

“We will implement all decisions regarding changes in the oblast personnel made legally. Therefore, I would like to ask the political organizations to avoid swinging the situation. There should be no vacuum of power and it must be transferred legitimately in Odesa oblast,” Mr. Skoryk said at the Council of political parties’ meeting held in Odesa oblast administration on 27 Feb.

“I took office as established by law and I will quit it after official decision is passed and successor is appointed. In my view, in current political situation it is irresponsible to file a resignation.”

“My position was to save civil peace in Odesa oblast and prevent radicalism and separatism and O.Turchynov, Acting President of Ukraine, supported it,” said Mr. Skoryk.
