An adviser to Ukraine’s interior minister and the former head of the counter-narcotics department at the ministry, Ilya Kiva, openly admitted being a “sexist in the direct sense of the word” in an interview with 112 TV channel on Jan 1.
During his interview, Kiva explained why he was fired in May, 2016 from his position as head of the narcotics department under Khatia Dekanoidze, who herself quit as head of the National Police of Ukraine in November 2016.
“I had a conflict with Dekanoidze. No, I admire her as a beautiful woman, probably a good mother. I just can’t stand a female superior,” Kiva said on Jan.1.
