Bloc of Petro Poroshenko MP Ariev heads Ukraine's PACE delegation
The Ukrainian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has unanimously elected Volodymyr Ariev (Bloc of Petro Poroshenko faction) as head of the PACE delegation, according to his faction colleague Iryna Heraschenko.
"[We] congratulate Volodymyr Ariev. [We] will also nominate him for the position of PACE Vice-President. Yulia Liovochkina [from Opposition Bloc's faction] got the position of the first deputy head of the delegation in a democratic way. And I'm very happy that Serhiy Sobolev [Batkivschyna faction], our most experienced colleague, became a deputy head of the delegation, as well as representative of the People's Front [party] Heorhiy Lohvynsky," the MP wrote on her Facebook page on Friday.
Ariev was a PACE delegation member in the previous convocation of the Verkhovna Rada. Before becoming an MP, he was a TV reporter.
