As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk said the decision to have Arsen Avakov retain office was one of the most difficult ones to take.

Before reappointing the minister, Honcharuk had a "serious conversation" with him and very clearly marked the "red lines" not to be crossed while in office.
