Submitting her resignation, the outgoing police chief cited political meddling in her work
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved the resignation of Khatia Dekanoidze from the post of chief of the country's national police, the police press office told UNIAN.
By another decision, the government appointed Vadym Troyan Acting Chief of the National Police.
After a year in the office, Dekanoidze announced her resignation on November 14.
Adding her name to the list of reformists quitting the office, the Georgian-born official cited government pressure and political meddling in the affairs of police among the reasons for her decision.
The revamp of the national police force has so far been one of the government's most visible reform.
