Ukraine's top prosecutor, who had reportedly resigned last month amid domestic and international pressure and accusations of stonewalling reforms, has resumed his duties.
The press service for the Prosecutor-General's Office confirmed on March 16 that Viktor Shokin was back at work.
The news came as a parliamentary committee recommended that the question of Shokin's resignation, announced last month, be brought to a full vote by lawmakers.
Shokin's deputy, Vladyslav Kutsenko, however, said there weren't enough votes to accept the resignation.
Shokin's return to work came just a day after a leading U.S. administration official made pointed reference to reforming the Prosecutor-General's Office.
U.S. and European officials have repeatedly called for President Petro Poroshenko to push Shokin out, as part of wider government reforms aimed at cleaning up the country's notorious graft.
