Source: Zurabov has repeatedly filed a statement of resignation


A source close to the former Ambassador of Russia to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov said that his current resignation comes after repeated calls to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a letter of resignation.

The source said that Zurabov personally appealed to the head of state with such statements, especially after the coup in Ukraine in 2014.

The source said that earlier Zurabov was not removed from office, as Moscow could not be deprived of the Ambassador in Kiev, as the nomination must be agreed with the authorities of Ukraine, including the Verkhovna Rada, which would be impossible under the current anti-Russian attitude of the Ukrainian legislators.

Now, the source said, Moscow apparently decided that nothing to lose, because Parliament has not enacted a package of laws on the implementation of the Minsk agreements, Amnesty for the militias, and elections in DND and LNR.
