Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has threatened to dismiss Energy and Coal Industry Minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn due to a lack of control over the ministry.

"Yesterday, at a cabinet meeting, I gave the energy minister a month to take control of the industry and his ministry, or I'll be forced to propose that the parliament make personnel decisions. In particular, he should also take control of the appointment of the heads of state-owned energy companies. There will be no representatives who are Russian citizens, such as [Konstantin] Grigorishin is," he said at a press conference on Tuesday.

As reported, Yuriy Kasych was appointed director of the Ukrenergo national energy company.

Kasych has until recently headed PJSC Chernihivoblenergo, a company controlled by the affiliates of entrepreneurs Konstantin Grigorishin and Ihor Kolomoisky.
