Ukrainian National Police chief Serhiy Knyazyev has dismissed the head of the Dnipropetrovsk regional police, Vitaliy Hlukhoverya, after a video showing the KORD special police detaining two patrol policemen who stopped Hlukhoverya's Range Rover was leaked online.

The police general was not in the car but it is believed that the special police had arrived on his driver's call.

An office investigation was launched on 27 July. Two days later Hlukhoverya tendered his resignation letter.

His deputy Artem Vasytskyy will step in for him.

Vasytskyy is 42 years old. He has been the deputy chief of the Dnipropetrovsk regional police since 2017. Previously, he served in criminal police in Donetsk Region. He has 23 years of operative experience.
