Director of the Department of Cultural Heritage and Cultural Assets at the Culture Ministry Andriy Vinhranovsky introduced the new head to the staff of the reserve on Friday.
Klymenko is a museum worker with 35 years of experience. In 1977, she worked as a senior fellow at Kyiv Maksym Rylsky Literary-Memorial Museum. From August 1977 to 2012, her activity was related to the Taras Shevchenko State Museum, where she began working as a researcher, and from December 2005 to January 2012, she led the museum as director general.
As reported, the previous director general of the reserve, Viktoria Lisnycha, was sacked on August 9 following the dismissal of a number of employees and a scandal with a bribe that former Deputy Director General for International Cooperation Vlada Prokayeva allegedly gave Culture Minister Mykhailo Kulyniak for her post.
