[Owner of the DTEK energy holding Rinat] Akhmetov is above all for [Prime Minister Denys] Shmyhal. This is understandable. But as for lawmakers who are outraged by the way Shmyhal behaves, my advice is – you eat the dust. You yourself have turned into nothing and nobody, bootlickers. They do not take advice from such people," he added. As UNIAN reported, the Verkhovna Rada on March 4, 2020, dismissed Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk and his Cabinet, after which Denys Shmyhal was appointed head of the new government. On March 11, the Cabinet tapped First Deputy Minister of Energy and Environmental Protection Vitaliy Shubin to work as acting minister. He was dismissed prior to Buslavets&#39; appointment. In 2017-2019, Shmyhal worked as an executive at DTEK, an energy holding owned by Ukraine&#39;s richest oligarch, Rinat Akhmetov.
