The president also appointed Regions Party MP Oleksandr Peklushenko head of Zaporizhia Regional State Administration.

Respective decrees were posted on the Web site of the head of state on Wednesday.

Kostiuk headed Ukrzaliznytsia from December 2008 to March 2011. He previously worked as the deputy director general of Ukrzaliznytsia.
