Cherevaty: No major staff changes planned at Ukrinform

27.05.2024, 16:16

Serhiy Cherevaty, the newly appointed director general of the news agency Ukrinform said at his first meeting with the team that no major staff changes were planned and that he would take healthy ideas from the team into account while organizing Ukrinform's work, as reported on the news agency's website.

"Getting support for healthy ideas will be no problem, there will be no major staff shuffling, we will smoothly find our pace. I will meet with all the teams," Cherevaty assured.

He added that the news agency's experience and recent evolvement will be taken into account in the future as well.

According to Serhiy Cherevaty, his plan is to make promoting Euro-Atlantic ideas and principles a special focus of the news agency.

"I have always been a staunch supporter of Euro-Atlantic integration, so we will be covering this topic at length. The most relevant subject for us right now is, of course, the Peace Summit," the Ukrinform director said.

Serhiy Cherevaty says that he took part in the Kyiv operation at the very start of the full-scale invasion served in the operational group of troops "Khortytsia" from June 2022 to March 2024.

According to Cherevaty, as a press officer, he has worked with all the news outlets in the world, has personal connections and experience with press officers in various Defense Forces units and the top military command.

As IMI reported, on May 23, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree ordering that the director general of the Ukrainian National News Agency Ukrinform be an army serviceperson.

On May 24, 2024, Oleksiy Matsuka announced that he had resigned as the Ukrinform director general.

It was reported on May 23 that the spokesman of the UAF Eastern Group, Colonel Serhiy Cherevaty, has been appointed director general of the national news agency Ukrinform.

Institute of Mass Information director Oksana Romaniuk has said that an army officer running the news agency Ukrinform may face a direct conflict of interest.
