The Pechersk district court in Kyiv decided that Yaroslav Kashuba, who was caught receiving a bribe in the amount of 622,000 hryvnia (about $28,500) in September last year, should be reinstated as State Employment Service head. Minister of Social Policy Pavlo Rozenko said in an interview with ZN.UA, Censor.NET reports.
"I have got the ruling of the Pechersk district court in Kyiv, under which I am obliged to reinstate him from Jan. 12, 2016. I have an official statement of his lawyer reading that the term of his (Kashuba's) ousting from power has ended, and he should get back to work since there is no court action in this case," the minister said.

"The case into bribe-taking was never heard. How should one respond to this situation? On the one hand, there are facts witnessed ether by me and everyone else. On the other hand, there are no proceedings in this case. Instead, there is a court decision that I am obliged to reinstate Kashuba as head of the State Employment Service," the minister said.
Pavlo Rozenko assured that he was not going to reinstate the grafter and will continue litigation with Kashuba.
