Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Defense Vyacheslav Shapovalov wrote a letter of resignation from his post. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

"Vyacheslav Shapovalov, who was in charge of the AFU logistic support, asked to be fired so as not to pose a threat to the stable supply of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as a result of a campaign of accusations related to the purchase of food services. Despite the fact that the allegations voiced are groundless and unfounded, Vyacheslav Shapovalov's statement about dismissal is a worthy act in the tradition of European and democratic politics, a demonstration that the interests of defense are higher than any cabinet or chair. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine believes that such a step will preserve the trust of society and international partners and ensure objectivity in additional clarifications and possible investigations. This is the philosophy that the team of the Ministry of Defense professes", - the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

As previously reported, Oleksii Reznikov commented on the scandal with the supply of food for the AFU.
