The Verkhovna Rada has accepted the resignations of five ministers, meaning a new cabinet reshuffle might be on the way.

The parliament of Ukraine, The Verkhovna Rada, voted to accept the dismissal of five ministers today, reports Kyiv Post. Most notably the minister of Defense, Andrij Taran, has left without saying why. He has previously been under fire a lot for his work.

The Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, Oleksii Reznikov, is expected to take his place, as he has been nominated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for the post.

The First Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Oleksiy Lyubchenko also resigned along with Ole Uruskiy, the Minister of Strategic Industries and Roman Abramovsky, the Minister of Environmental Protection and Natural Resoruces Roman Abramovsky. The new ministers has not been found yet.

It is not the first time that there has been a reshuffle of the cabinet in the time of President Zelenskyy. In March last year, former Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk resigned twice before he was let go.
