Ukraine’s corruption shake-up, briefly explained | VOX

Must Read

A corruption scandal is shaking up the Ukrainian government, with top officials stepping aside as the country tries to assure its Western partners of its responsible stewardship of billions in military and economic aid. 

Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head in the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and a deputy in the ministry of defense, Vyacheslav Kapovalov, have both resigned. The details behind the shake-up are unclear, but it comes after reports in Ukrainian media of the Ministry of Defense purchasing food for troops at extra-high prices. Ukraine has a history of struggling with corruption, with Zelenskyy promising to tackle the issue when he was elected in 2019. The recent ousters also include a deputy prosecutor general and several regional governors and government ministers.
