Volodymyr Zhmak is suing UZ and the Cabinet of Ministers for firing him last month.

The reasons for his firing were not made public. Ivan Yuryk, the new Acting Head of the Company, is the 11th head in seven years. “The release of the chairman of the board six months after the appointment and further chaos with the acting head of the company will definitely worsen the state of UZ,” Viktor Dovhan, a former Deputy Infrastructure Minister, told the Center for Transportation Strategies.
