Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has recommended the appointment of ex-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk as head the Ukrainian Embassy in Russia.
A petition appeared on the official website on May 13th.
“In my opinion, the only worthy candidate for the post of Ambassador of Ukraine in Russia — is Andrey (author messed up the name of Yatsenyuk ed.) Petrovich Yatsenyuk. He is currently unemployed, (don’t know if it is registered in the employment center as such, but it doesn’t matter). The main thing is that in Russia, as the Ambassador of Ukraine, he will have immunity, and at the same time, the Russian authorities are afraid of him, and if they are afraid, it will mean that he as the Ambassador of Ukraine in Russia obviously has the ability to achieve things in Russia, which is useful for Ukraine for both the practical and legal consequences of the relationship,” stated the text of the petition.
