Comments of political analyst Petr Oleschuk on the possible resignation of the governor of the National Bank of Ukraine Valeria Gontareva are given below.
We must understand that Valeria Gontareva has never played an independent political role. Before everything else she is the protégé of Ukrainian president Petr Poroshenko. Accordingly, any ‘black mark’ of Gontareva is a challenge to his power, his authority. So I think we will face a serious struggle and the president will hardly agree to give his creation away. This resignation can be possible only if he decides to conduct personnel reshuffle in the near future. But I do not think that it may happen now.
Concerning future prospects of Valeria Gontareva on the post of NBU governor, she will face the same criticism. We must realize that she is very unpopular personality because one of the most serious financial crises in Ukraine happened during her chairmanship in the National Bank. Therefore, we all understand that sooner or later the president will have to give her away or change for someone else. But I think that he would prefer to do it by choice and to substitute her for less loyal candidacy. In any case, the resignation of Gontareva will happen, but the president strives to make it happen later and on his terms.
