Ukraine General Prosecutor fires senior reformist prosecutor

KIEV (Reuters) - Senior Ukrainian prosecutor and anti-corruption campaigner Davit Sakvarelidze has been fired by General Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, Shokin's deputy Vladyslav Kutsenko said on Tuesday.

Sakvarelidze, one of several foreign-born experts brought in to assist Ukraine with its Western-backed reform drive, has been an outspoken critic of the prosecutor's office.
