Ukraine’s Zelensky Escalates Anti-Corruption Push by Dismissing 2 Officials: Live Updates

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has taken a strong stance against corruption in the country, dismissing two high-ranking officials from their posts on Tuesday.

The two officials, Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Sayenko and Deputy Chief of Staff Vadym Pozharskyi, were dismissed as part of Zelensky’s ongoing anti-corruption push. Sayenko and Pozharskyi are the latest in a series of officials to be removed from their posts in the past few months.

The dismissals come after a series of anti-corruption protests in Ukraine last year, with many Ukrainians calling for an end to corruption in the country. Zelensky has promised to root out corruption, and his latest move is seen as a sign of his commitment to his campaign promises.

The dismissals are also likely to be welcomed by the international community, as Ukraine has been under increased scrutiny in recent years over its handling of corruption. The European Union has urged the country to take a stronger stance against corruption, and the dismissals could be seen as a sign of progress.

It remains to be seen how the dismissals will affect Ukraine’s efforts to tackle corruption, but it is clear that Zelensky is determined to make progress on this issue.
