Deputy Prosecutor-General Yevhen Yenin has resigned, a source in the Prosecutor-General's Office (PGO) has told LB.ua.

Given this, the group of prosecutors under Kostyantyn Kulyk's lead is expected to be disbanded now.

In late March, Yenin cancelled the suspicion notices issued to politicians within the criminal case of fugitive oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko. Prosecutor Kulyk later said that it was an unlawful decision to cancel the suspicion notices issued to Borys Lozhkin, Oleksiy Filatov, Valeriya Hontareva and others.

According to Kulyk, this, in particular, allowed Filatov to leave Ukraine and influence the witnesses, therefore Yenin has been "aiding Kurchenko's organized crime ring". In the recent weeks, Filatov did not go abroad, except for a day working trip to Brussels.
