Deputy Dmitry Lubinets may become the new ombudsman.
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk proposed the candidacy of Deputy Dmytro Lubinets for the position of the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Human Rights, instead of Lyudmila Denisova.
Stefanchuk reported this in Facebook.
“In accordance with the requirements of the law, I made a proposal regarding the candidacy of the People’s Deputy of Ukraine Dmitry Valeryevich Lubinets for the position of the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Human Rights. I believe that his experience as Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Human Rights, De-occupation and Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories in the Donetsk, Luhansk regions and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the city of Sevastopol, national minorities and interethnic relations, as well as his professional and human qualities will create all the necessary prerequisites for the full implementation of the powers vested in the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Human Rights,” noted Stefanchuk.
As UNIAN reported, on May 31, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the decision to dismiss Lyudmila Denisova from the post of Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights.
Lubynets is a member of the For the Future group and is the chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee; he was elected to parliament in 2019 as a non-partisan self-nominated candidate in constituency No. 60 (Donetsk region).
