In December 2009 during the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election campaign incumbent Prime Minister of Ukraine and presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko promised to replace Medvedko if elected president. Tymoshenko said Medvedko is controlled by the opposition Party of Regions headed by (also presidential candidate) Victor Yanukovych. According to her that has made it impossible to hold accountable individuals responsible for bank fraud on a massive scale during the fall of 2008.

Although Medvedko's term was set to expire in November 2012 Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych dismissed Medvedko as prosecutor general on November 3, 2010. According to Yanukovych Medvedko had asked for his resignation because he believed "that there should be rotation of senior staff".
