Advocates call to fire Oleh Tatarov from the Presidential Office

08.08.2020, 11:16

Advocacy and other civil society organizations are concerned with assigning Oleh Tatarov as the vice-head of the Presidential Office. This man is a close team-mate of Vitaliy Zakharchenko, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Yanukovych. These organizations call to the President of Ukraine to fire Tatarov.

This was the joint open petition of several organizations, Zmina informs.

The petitioners remind that Oleh Tatarov worked as vice-head of the main investigations department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs during Euromaidan, and in that capacity he quite openly tried to mislead the public  and journalists about the events on the streets at that time.

The petitioners call the President to fire Oleh Tatarov, and in the future, “not to allow assigning to high political positions any people who tried to justify and cover up mass crimes and violations of human rights, and are themselves personification of the authoritarian rule of Yanukovych, as they held leading positions in the law-enforcement agencies of that time”.
