Media controlled by the oligarch threaten with consequences in case of governor's dismissal.
The UNIAN agency and TSN report that due to the "probable unrests" in Dnepropetrovsk oblast', additional forces of the National Guard of Ukraine are being allegedly transferred there.
The threat of destabilization of the region may be well regarded as Kolomoysky's blackmailing of the Ukrainian authorities in order to prevent his dismissal.
Also, TSN reports that the Russian president Vladimir Putin allegedly asked about the dismissal of the governor during the "Normandy Four" format negotiations in Minsk last month.
The media began talking about the governor's resignation after his participation in a raider attempt to seize the state-owned company "Ukrtransnafta". Last night, after the dismissal of Oleksandr Lazorko as a chairman of the "Ukrtransnafta" board, the governor, accompanied by armed men in camouflage arrived to the office of the company. He later told about the "raider seizure" of the enterprise and cursed the journalist Sergiy Andrushko.
MPs and former journalists Sergiy Leshchenko and Mustafa Nayem said that the president and prime minister are obliged to dismiss Kolomoysky from his office after the events around "Ukrtransnafta."
Chief Editor of "Ukrayinska Pravda," Sevgil' Musaeva said that Kolomoysky had told to the Minister of Energy and Fuel and acting head of "Ukrtransnafta" that there are 2,000 battalions' soldiers in Kyiv now.
According to the journalist, he allegedly called up the meeting, because he is being taken the company.Source: UNIAN
