Resignastion wave has come also to the deputy head of the Office of the President, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, as wrote a resignation letter.
According to sources, instead of Tymoshenko, they plan to appoint the head of the military administration of the Kyiv region, Oleksiy Kuleba.
In addition, the heads of the Central Military Administrations of Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson Oblasts will be dismissed.

Earlier in January, it was reported that in the near future Tymoshenko may lose the post of the deputy head of the Office of the President.
It was also reported that several heads of state administrations related to Tymoshenko may be fired.

To remind, during one of the recent evening addresses to the nation, our president Volodymyr Zelenskyy admitted, that it is by justice that the strength of society and the strength of the state are united. That day, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dismissed a deputy minister [Lozynskyy for the bribe of $400,000] who was exposed by NABU.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also mentioned: "we have already made personnel decisions - some today, some tomorrow - regarding officials of various levels in ministries and other central government bodies, in the regions, and in the law enforcement system."
