President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, signed a decree on the dismissal of Roman Romanov from the post of General Director of Ukroboronprom State Enterprise. The relevant decree No.26 / 2018 from February 12th was posted on the website of the head of state.
"To dismiss Romanov Roman Anatolyevich from the post of General Director of the State Enterprise Ukroboronprom," the document says.
On the evening of February 12th, Romanov announced his decision to leave his post.
In late January, the Cabinet called on the President to dismiss the head of Ukroboronprom. The reason for this decision was the failure to fulfill the government's instruction to pay salary arrears at the Mykolayiv shipyard which are a part of Ukroboronprom.
