Yanukovych ally Aliona Rotova to head Ministry of Defense construction department: "I have always been and will be a member of the Party of Regions"


Former leader of the Party of Regions in the Kherson region and head of the electoral headquarters of the party's elections HQ was appointed Acting Director of the Capital Construction Department of the Defense Ministry.

It is reported by Censor.NET.

"I declare that I have been and will be a member of the Party of Regions. I have always adhered to the ideology, the Charter, and the Program of the Party of Regions. I never interrupted or suspended my membership in the Party of Regions. Even in the most difficult years for the Party I remained one of its most active, committed, and disciplined members," Rotova said in 2010.

Previously, as a member of the Party of Regions she headed the economic reforms sector in the Kherson Regional Administration.

The budget for 2015 has over 2 billion hryvnia ($500,000,000) factored in for the needs of capital construction of the Defense Ministry - more than in 24 years of independence combined. For example, in 2012, a total of 12 million ($1,500,000 as of the time) was allocated for the capital construction for the military.

Rotova is associated with Poroshenko's Kherson team - head of Ukroboronprom Roman Romanov and his deputy Serhii Pinkas.

Rotova's appointment to one of the most attractive and capital-intensive positions, which involves not only funds but also all the construction projects on the lands of the Defense Ministry, was ordered personally by President Petro Poroshenko to Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak.

The position of the department director could have been filled through an open competition, its head elected among professional volunteers. But contrary to all logic, provincial politician Aliona Rotova, who received her Party of Regions membership card from Yanukovych's hands and who repeatedly swore allegiance to Yanukovych personally and the entire Party of Regions, and who is absolutely inexperienced in construction, was appointed the director of the department
