The Office of the President granted the request of Alexei Arestovich to dismiss him from the post of non-staff adviser.
According to Nikiforov, Maria Vitushok, head of the Office of the President’s Office of Ukraine, signed a corresponding order to dismiss Arestovich.
Arestovich said he wrote his letter of resignation from the Office of the President after a “fundamental mistake”. After a Russian missile attack on a house in Dnipro, which has already killed 44 people, an adviser to the OP said that the Kh-22 missile was shot down by Ukrainian air defense forces, causing it to fall on a residential building.
Arestovich is known for his “soothing videos”, as well as the statement that active hostilities on the territory of Ukraine will end “within 2-3 weeks.” Often phrases (and even his photo) become memes.
In 2017, Arestovich called ATO “a resort for boys.” This statement caused a wave of indignation.
At the end of 2022, Andriy Yermak, head of the Office of the President, said that Oleksiy Arestovich, the OP adviser, is in his place, has his own army of supporters and communicates professionally with her.
