The document was published on the website of the head of state's office.

"To remove Tupitsky Alexander Nikolaevich from the post of judge of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine from February 28, 2021 for a period of one month," the decree says.

In October 2020, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine ruled that part of the provisions of the Law "On Prevention of Corruption" did not comply with the country's fundamental law.

This also affected the criminal liability for inaccurate declaration of income by officials.

After that, Zelensky introduced a bill to parliament, according to which it is proposed to deprive the judges of the Constitutional Court of their powers and restore the law on declaration that they had canceled.

At the end of December, Zelensky signed a decree dismissing Tupitsky from the position of a 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, Zelenskiy withdrew the draft law on the deprivation of powers of judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine for revision.
