Poroshenko Fires Taruta As Donetsk Oblast Governor

10.10.2014 18:57

Multimillionaire Serhiy Taruta was dismissed as governor of the Donetsk Oblast on Oct. 10, according to sources in the Presidential Administration and in Taruta's office.

Taruta has been an outspoken critic of the September peace plan support by Poroshenko and the rift between the president and the governor has been growing since he was appointed in March. 

Most recently, Taruta criticized the president's effort for peace in Donbas, saying on Sept. 16 that the peace plan Poroshenko agreed to made the people of Donbas "feel raped."
