Olha Stefanishyna, Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, is reportedly being considered to replace Denys Maliuska as Ukraine’s Justice Minister. As a result, Stefanishyna will vacate her current position.

Details: Ukrainska Pravda sources in President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's team report that the incumbent Justice Minister Denys Maliuska signed a letter of resignation some time ago, although it lacks a specified effective date and has not yet been implemented.

Ukrainska Pravda sources stressed that Stefanishyna is to be left as Deputy Prime Minister for European integration and appointed as the new Minister of Justice.

In addition, Zelenskyy is still weighing up the option of not replacing Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal but rather reshuffling his cabinet.

"There are so many potential changes in the Cabinet of Ministers [the Ukrainian government] that even without replacing Shmyhal, they are enough to talk about a global government reset," UP sources said.
