“Yes, instead of fighting yesterday’s system, I decided to get more involved in work with the people of tomorrow – those who will create tomorrow’s system,” Sheremeta wrote on his Facebook page, implying his plans to go back to academia having once headed the Kyiv Mohyla Business School and Kyiv School of Economics.

Now, parliament’s Sep. 2 session will include his resignation as a key agenda item.

During a news briefing the same day, the 43-year-old Ph.D. student of Slovenia’s Bled School of Management, said the reason for leaving his post was an Aug. 20 Cabinet of Ministers move to appoint Valeriy Pyatnitsky, a politician who held controversial positions under Viktor Yanukovych’s disgraced presidency, as the ministry’s deputy head on European integration issues.
