President Vladimir Zelensky said that he did not know about the dual citizenship of Abromavicius with his appointment to Ukroboronprom. According to Zelensky, Abromavicius has the right to head the state concern.
“Honestly, I did not know that he had Lithuanian citizenship before my appointment. I really didn’t know. It is true that he can hold this position (head of Ukroboronprom, - ed.), Because he is not a civil servant, ”the head of state said during a visit to Lithuania last week, writes lrytas.lt.
At the same time, the legislative ability to manage a state concern does not justify the presence of two passports.
“I can appeal to Abromavicius publicly and urge him to renounce one of his citizenships. When we elected a new government, we first of all appreciated professionalism, not a violation of the law. ”
Recall, on June 12, President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky appointed the former Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine Abromavicius as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Ukroboronprom State Concern.
Recently it turned out that Abromavicius did not renounce Lithuanian citizenship and did not have the right to head Ukroboronprom. MP from the “servants of the people” faction Alexander Dubinsky asks the State Migration Service of Ukraine to begin the process of depriving citizenship of Ukraine of the general director of the state concern “Ukroboronprom” Abromavichyus.
