Maliar was a prominent figure during the invasion of Ukraine, publishing daily news about the country's progress on the front.
Along with her, deputy ministers Volodymyr Havrylov, Vitalii Deinega, Hanna Maliar, Rostislav Teodozievich, Denys Sharapov, and Andrii Shevchenko were let go, as well as the State Secretary for the Defense Ministry Kostiantyn Vashchenko.
The government did not give a reason for their dismissal. The move comes after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky named Rustem Umerov as the new defense minister earlier this month, replacing country's defense minister Oleksii Reznikov.
