Chornovol was appointed as the Ukrainian government representative for anticorruption policy on March 5, 2014.
“Tomorrow I’ll write a letter [of resignation] – the government is
living the rest its days before the elections. I agree: I
should have resigned earlier. But I wanted to finish off things I
started. I wished to do definite useful things for Ukraine. And now I
clearly understand – it was useless for me to be there,” she wrote in
her blog on Monday.
Chornovol said that it was senseless to hold this post since “there
is no political will in Ukraine to carry out a hard-edged, large-scale
war against corruption.”
