Wave Of Top Ukrainian Officials Resign As Major Corruption Scandal Rocks Country

Multiple high-ranking Ukrainian officials have resigned amid large-scale corruption allegations.

With what is being called the largest mass resignation and graft scandal since the Russian invasion started, dozens of officials quit their posts over allegations of bribery, mismanagement of aid funds, and embezzlement.

According to the Telegram channel of Oleg Nemchinov, four deputy ministers and five regional governors were sacked by Ukraine’s cabinet on Tuesday.

Oleksiy Symonenko, Ukraine’s deputy prosecutor general, also announced his resignation on the same day.

The resignations come in the wake of reports that Ukraine’s top leaders were profiting from the bloody conflict with Russia, buying military food at inflated prices and taking luxury holidays.

International reports detail the following list of officials resigning:

  • Deputy Prosecutor General Oleskiy Symonenko
  • Deputy Minister for Development of Communities and Territories Ivan Lukeryu
  • Deputy Minister for Development of Communities and Territories Vyacheslav Negoda
  • Deputy Minister for Social Policy Vitaliy Muzychenk
  • And the regional governors of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Kyiv, Sumy, and Kherson

Regarding the food contracts, Shapovalov is accused of signing a deal with a shady firm.

He purchased military rations at inflated prices in what appears to be a shady scheme to line the pockets of contractors.

As Summit News reported, the deputy head of the Zelensky administration Kyrylo Tymoshenko stands accused of living a lavish wartime lifestyle:

Many current mainstream media reports on Tuesday are burying some of the key verified details. For example, BBC writes simply that “Tymoshenko was implicated in several scandals during his tenure, including in October last year when he was accused of using a car donated to Ukraine for humanitarian purposes.”

But starting in early December local Ukrainian outlets, angered at the posh lifestyle of Ukrainian leaders at a moment tens of millions are without power amid Russian aerial bombardment of the nation’s power grid, began confirming that Tymoshenko drove high-end sports cars in and out of the capital, to and from mansions which typically range in cost from $10,000 to $25,000 per month.

While Zelensky portrays the resignations as proof of their efforts to crack down, the scandal solidifies criticisms about the corruption in Ukraine.
