Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has canceled the decree appointing Alexander Tupitsky as a judge of the Constitutional Court. Also, the head of state canceled the same decree on judge Alexander Kasminin.
“To cancel: the decree of the President of Ukraine dated May 14, 2013 No. 256” On the appointment of A. Tupitsky as a judge of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine “; Decree of the President of Ukraine dated September 17, 2013 No. 513 “On the appointment of A. Kasminin as a judge of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine,” the message says.
This decision was made with the aim of “ensuring compliance with the Constitution of Ukraine, human and civil rights and freedoms, ensuring state independence and national security,” the resolution says.
At the end of December 2020, Zelensky signed a decree on the removal of Tupitsky from the position of judge of the Constitutional Court. The Constitutional Court said that Tupitsky will continue to work, despite the decree on his removal.
At the end of January, Zelensky withdrew the bill on the deprivation of the powers of judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine for revision, and on February 26 signed a new decree to remove Tupitsky from office for one month.
On March 5, the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, Andriy Yermak, said that a complete reset of the Constitutional Court with a change in its head is expected in Ukraine in the near future.
