Oleksandr Danylyuk, who was dismissed as finance minister on 7 June, has said on the air of Hromadske that his team is leaving the office too.

These are advisers in addition to deputy ministers, according to the ex-minister.

"These are people who came with me, including Yuriy Butsa, Serhiy Marchenko. They tendered their resignations. We as a team are leaving the Finance Ministry. Other advisers who had been helping me in my work are also leaving, including Yana Buhrymova, who in principle is the strongest candidate," he said.

"Oksana Markarova will stay but he did not come with me," he added.

Markarova was appointed acting finance minister on 7 June. She said she would continue to develop cooperation with the IMF.
