Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv has closed proceedings on a case against Former Ukrainian Regional Development and Construction Minister and Deputy Leader of the People's Movement of Ukraine (Rukh) Vasyl Kuybida due to the lack of evidence of a crime.
According to Rukh representatives, if the prosecution does not appeal against this ruling, it will come into effect in ten days.
As reported, the SBU accused Kuybida of violating the law while selecting the head of the State Inspectorate of Architecture and Construction Control of Ukraine in Rivne region at the beginning of 2010.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
