The first Ukrainian Minister announced his resignation after the inauguration of Zelensky

Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that he had a "very good meeting" with the newly elected President Volodymyr Zelensky and intended to resign.

This was reported by "Interfax-Ukraine".

"No one will fire me because we need to have political culture. It is within the framework of the political culture – and I think it would be the right thing – to allow the new President to choose those with whom he should work in areas such as foreign policy, such as defense. Of course, I must offer my resignation to the new President, and I will certainly do so. I have already said that I have my own plans, including political ones. It corresponds to my plans," he told journalists on Monday in Kyiv.

The Minister noted that he had a "very good meeting" with Zelensky.

"We discussed various issues. And I believe that in the areas where our principles and priorities coincide – and I am very optimistic about this – we will certainly work. This can be applied to both future councils, if they are needed, as well as to possible participation in the negotiations," Klimkin explained.

According to "Apostrophe", on April 23, Chairman of the Ternopil Regional State Administration Stepan Barna said he would resign from office after the inauguration of the new President Volodymyr Zelensky.
