Based on the results of the audit of the decrees of Viktor Yanukovych conducted in pursuance of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council, the 2013 decrees on the appointment of Oleksandr Tupytsky and Oleksandr Kasminin as judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine were revoked. This was announced by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
"At the recent meeting of the National Security and Defense Council, among other things, a decision was made to audit all decrees of Yanukovych. Today we have the first results. We are talking about two decrees of Yanukovych - of May 14 and September 17, 2013 on the appointment of judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine Oleksandr Mykolayovych Tupytsky and Oleksandr Volodymyrovych Kasminin. I have revoked both of these decrees. These persons may have a well deserved rest,"the President said.
"If there are weeks when there are no meetings of the National Security and Defense Council, it does not mean that people who have been damaging the state interests of Ukraine for many years can relax and sleep peacefully," he added.
In addition, Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that he signed a decree on the implementation of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of March 19, 2021, according to which 19 companies’ licenses and special permits for the extraction and use of Ukrainian subsoil were revoked.
"The relevant decision of the State Service for Geology and Subsoil of Ukraine is ready and will be published soon," the President said.
The Head of State also announced the signing of a decree on the implementation of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council, according to which in 2021 inspections of all entities that received special permits for subsoil use without an auction and did not start mining, especially of oil and gas, during two years from the date of receipt of the relevant permits will be conducted.
"The decisions of the National Security and Defense Council are not loud declarations. Each word of them already has or will soon have real, mostly unpleasant legal consequences for a number of individuals and legal entities," Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
