Herman's Freudian slip

Yesterday, Hanna Herman, commenting on criticism from from the European People’s Party and others about politically motivated persecution of members of Ukraine's political opposition, said:

"However, Ukraine should get used to the fact that people are appointed to a high office not to promote their drivers [reference to now-detained former Interior Minister Yury Lutsenko who had allegedly promoted his driver to an officer’s rank]. Power is given to serve the people.."

Ironic that shortly after her own appointment to the position of deputy head of Yanukovych's presidential administration last Spring, Herman's son, Mykola Korovitsyn, [now Herman] was appointed Deputy Minister of Emergency Situations.

His experience prior to this? As an aide to parliamentary deputy Taras Chornovil, and..being his mum's driver...[More here] ..... what a nice boy..

Would not someone with a lifetime's experience in the emergency services or, perhaps from a military background be more suited for this loft deputy minister's job ?

[The Minister of Emergency Situations at the time, Nestor Shufrych said that young Mykola ..was good at languages...]
