Mykola Azarov told the head of the city administration, Oleksandr Popov, to “bring him back to work.” Azarov had earlier said Chernovetsky’s role had become similar to that of the “Queen of England,” after Popov was effectively appointed to run the city by Yanukovych.

Insiders at city hall say Chernovetsky is not even in the country. Analysts suggest a deal has been struck with Yanukovych’s ruling Party of Regions that he disappear from public view in exchange for immunity from prosecution in connection with various accusations of corruption.

Known for his extravagance, including hosting a press conference in swimming trunks and offering to sell kisses to fill the city budget, Chernovetsky was in the spotlight until Popov was made deputy of the city administration in June 2010, effectively taking over city management.
