You're reading: Expert: Mass dismissals at Kyiv Pechersk Lavra may bring back dishonest schemes for carving up reserve’s profit
on social media

“The labor dispute between the director and one of her deputies is not the only problem in this situation. But now we are facing a serious labor conflict, as some 20 employees, including several employees, have been dismissed from the reserve. There are questions over why they were fired and whether it was it done according to the law. Unfortunately, we are concerned about the fact that the dismissals took place in spheres that earn profits for the reserve,” an expert in labour conflicts and a member of the public council at Kyiv City State Administration, Oleksandr Paliy, said at a press conference in Kyiv on Monday.

Paliy said that Deputy Director General for Financial and Economic Issues Liliya Styrenko and Deputy Director General for Scientific and Sightseeing Activities Svitlana Zorynets were dismissed from the national reserve.

“For example, people that directly managed sightseeing work, [sales of] jewellery and souvenirs were dismissed. And these are three key sources of profit at Lavra,” he said.
