"I always say that I left my heart in the Emergencies Ministry," Shufrych told a press conference in Donetsk.
He noted that the decision on returning him the post of emergencies minister depends on President Viktor Yanukovych.
"I can name several worthy candidates for this post. It is the President and the team, which now dominates the government, who will make this decision," Shufrych said.
He admitted that he was stung by the dismissal and appointment to this place of Viktor Baloha.
Shufrych has been holding the post of deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine since July 2010.
Prior to that, since March to July 2010, he was the emergencies minister.
