Volodymyr Zelensky decided to show his dissatisfaction with the results of local elections dismissing the First Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Serhiy Trofimov.

ZN.UA was reported this referring to their sources in the OPU.

If this decision remains in force, the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate and the leadership of the UOC-MP will be very upset about it, the report says. The one to be happy with it is the head of the presidential office, Andriy Yermak, who has long sought to get rid of Trofimov and to start an overall renewal of the personnel of the Head of State Office.

Yermak believes that the competence of the team recruited in the OPU from the former life of Zelensky and the ex-head of the presidential office, Andriy Bohdan, has exhausted itself. The election result was proof of it.

It is expected that if the draft decree on Trofimov's resignation is signed and made public, Kyrylo Tymoshenko will deal with regional personnel policy. The head of the OPU is not happy with this option, but the president ordered to "work together".

Local elections were held in Ukraine on October 25. According to exit polls, "Servant of the People" failed almost everywhere all over Ukraine.

Trofimov, a former producer of Studio Kvartal 95, is among other things involved in church policy issues in the President's Office. The politician does not hide the fact that he is a parishioner of the Moscow Patriarchate's church and visits the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra.

Serhiy Trofimov and his wife Anastasia have recently got married at the St. Panteleimon Convent in Theophania of the UOC-MP, as RISU has reported. The wedding ceremony was conducted by Metropolitan Onufriy.

Earlier it was reported that a man who looks like the First Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Serhiy Trofimov, took part in the Liturgy at the monastery of the UOC-MP near Kyiv.
