Bila Tserkva, August 21 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said that Vasyl Nadraha was dismissed as Ukraine’s first deputy minister for social policy due to problems with the payment of stipends to students.
“He’s a diligent employee. But there are moments in the work of any administrator that make you think whether this administrator corresponds to his post or not, and some decisions that were prepared by this official, including the decision on stipends, helped us understand that he does not have enough responsibility,” he told reporters in Bila Tserkva on Tuesday, while commenting on the reason for Nadraha’s dismissal.
“Respecting his former and current achievements, we decided that it’s necessary to find a new job for him,” Azarov said.
As reported, on August 20, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych signed a decree dismissing Nadraha as first deputy minister for social policy.
Nadraha was appointed first deputy minister for social policy on December 24, 2010. Earlier, he headed the Labor and Social Policy Ministry that was disbanded under a decree of December 9, 2010.
