Chairman of the Kharkiv Regional Council Tatyana Yegorova-Lutsenko agreed to leave and pay material assistance to the Deputy of the Regional Council, General Director of the Regional Center for Medical Statistics, Healthy Lifestyle and Information and Analytical Statistics Volodymyr Svyatash, who is suspected of having links with the occupiers and should be deprived of the mandate of “Honorary Citizen of Kharkiv area”. This is evidenced by the documents published by the Kharkov edition of “Thought”.
So, according to the published document, on October 19, Vladimir Svyatash wrote to Tatyana Egorova-Lutsenko with a statement about agreeing on the date of the vacation, its terms and providing material assistance for recovery.
On October 26, the head of the Kharkiv Regional Council, Egorova-Lutsenko, agreed to Vladimir Svyatash a vacation of 24 calendar days, starting from November 5, 2022, “with the payment of financial assistance for recovery.”
On November 23, the press service of the Kharkiv Regional Council, when asked by a journalist whether Yegorova-Lutsenko really agreed on Svyatash’s vacation and whether this could affect the consideration of the issue of depriving this deputy of the title “Honorary Citizen of the Kharkiv Region”, said that this was not true and the chairman of the regional council did not coordinate the vacation .
However, already on November 24, after submitting a document on the approval of the vacation and the payment of financial assistance to Svyatash, the press service reported that they had not yet commented on this information.
Recall that Volodymyr Svyatash is the father of Dmitriy Svyatash, an ex-people’s deputy from the Party of Regions, whom, according to media reports, the Russian invaders planned to make the “Gauleiter” of the Kharkiv region after the capture of Kharkov.
According to the YouControl portal, since April 25 of this year, Vladimir Svyatash has been temporarily suspended from his duties as the general director of the Regional Center for Medical Statistics, Healthy Lifestyles and Information and Analytical Statistics. According to the Kharkiv Anti-Corruption Center, he has not appeared at his workplace since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Volodymyr Svyatash became an “Honorary Citizen of Kharkiv Region” on February 27, 2020. On November 21, 2022, the Expert Council recommended that the Kharkiv Regional Council consider depriving Svyatash of this title and the corresponding scholarship.
On October 6, 2022, during a meeting of the “Kernes Block – Successful Kharkiv” faction in the Kharkiv Regional Council, its members decided to expel Svyatash from the faction and apply the rule of imperative mandate to him, which means his early removal from the ranks of the deputies of the Kharkiv Regional Council. This decision will come into force after the relevant decision of the Kharkiv Regional Territorial Electoral Commission, which cannot be assembled due to hostilities.
