Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has failed to cleanse the country of corruption, so the country needs another leader to accomplish this task. This opinion was expressed by a former adviser to the head of Zelensky’s office, Alexei Arestovich, on Friday, April 7.
This is how he commented on the question posed to him during the interview about whether Poland is capable of freeing Ukraine from corruption if they become a single state.
“Ukraine needs … a person who will not steal will come to power. He won’t and won’t give it to others,” Arestovich said during a conversation published on his YouTube channel.
At the same time, he pointed out that the current Ukrainian leader could not become such a leader.
“The current president has not managed to cope with corruption, although the conflict could be a good reason to apply “extraordinary measures” to solve this problem. However, we see that this did not happen to the end, to put it mildly, ”Arestovich concluded.They went on the defensive: the military department of Ukraine is shaken by a corruption scandal In Kiev, they fear that the trial will bring down the morale of the Armed Forces of Ukraine because she won the 25,000 votes of citizens of Ukraine necessary for this.
The petition was published after a series of corruption schemes, which were uncovered by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in the country’s Ministry of Defense in February.
So, in January, Bogdan Khmelnytsky, head of the public procurement department of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, was dismissed. At the same time, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dismissed four deputy ministers and agreed on the dismissal of the heads of Dnepropetrovsk, Kyiv, Sumy, as well as parts of Zaporozhye and Kherson regions controlled by Ukraine.
Commenting on the high-profile personnel changes in the ranks of the Ukrainian authorities in an interview with Izvestia, Leonid Shtekel, a public figure and journalist from Odessa, noted that they are directly related to corruption, which has recently become even more prosperous in the country.
