The Central Electoral Commission (CEC) has recognised Mykola Tararin as an elected member of parliament of Ukraine instead of Servant of the People ex-MP Andriy Kholodov, who has not returned to Ukraine since January 2023 and lives with his family in Cyprus, where he has an estate.
Tararin was No 147 on the Servant of the People's election list.
Born in 1979, during the 2019 election campaign Tararin worked for the Gelon law firm which represented Kvartal 95, Volodymyr Zelenskyy's former comic troupe, according to CHESNO Movement NGO.
According to YouControl, Tararin is also a beneficiary of the law firm Consion. The owner of both was Serhiy Ionushas, an MP from the Servant of the People party, according to CHESNO Movement.
