As reported by Censor.NET citing Interfax-Ukraine news agency, Tereshchuk replaced Oleksandr Horhan who was earlier dismissed from this post. The respective presidential decrees (No. 348/2018 and No. 349/2018) of Oct. 30, 2018 have been posted on the website of the presidential press office.
"To appoint Oleksandr Dmytrovych Tereschuk the head of Kyiv Regional State Administration from October 30, 2018 with a salary set in accordance with the law," the document says.
Horhan was dismissed as head of Kyiv Regional State Administration according to a letter of resignation submitted by him.
On Dec. 14, 2015, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov dismissed Tereshchuk as Kyiv police chief.
"Chief of Kyiv police, Gen. Tereshchuk has been discharged based on proposal by Khatia Dekanoidze [National Police chief - ed.]. Several senior Kyiv police officers, who failed to pass reassessment, have also been fired. Nothing personal. Just principles," the minister then wrote.
