And, according to (in Russian) and Channel 5, Valentyna Semenyuk, head of the State Property Fund, has resigned today.

Recently, the Socialist Party of Ukraine, on whose quota Semenyuk had been appointed head of the State Property Fund, called her to resign and this way to protest privatization of Kryvorizhstal [...]. Socialists insist that the plant should remain the property of the state.

Yesterday night, Semenyuk was hospitalized with high blood pressure. She did issue a decree, though, which allowed her first deputy, Oleksandr Bondar, to sign papers necessary for today's sale.

Tatyana Korobova wrote this in one of her recent columns (in Russian):

[...] while the state, acting through the State Property Fund, guards this state property - runs Kryvorizhstal, that is - the head of the [State Property Fund], Valentyna Semenyuk, controls four intermediary companies that have stuck themselves to the [Kryvorizhstal] plant. [...]
