Information policy deputy minister resigns in protest
Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine Tetiana Popova has decided to resign.
"I am resigning. I don't agree with attacks on journalists and attacks on freedom of speech by political organizations and individual political officials. I can't tolerate the absence of proper reaction to that kind of attacks," she wrote on Facebook.
"As a protest, I am leaving the government, but will continue fighting for the Maidan ideas, for freedom and democracy as a citizen and a volunteer. I'll continue fighting for everything our patriots are fighting for at the front line," she said.
Popova held the position of deputy minister of information policy from February 4, 2015.
