Until the perception is distorted: will the West support us against the backdrop of scandals


The perception has not yet been distorted: will the West support us amid scandals

Ukraine was rocked by a number of scandals related to corruption, embezzlement of budget funds, etc. This should not affect international assistance to Ukraine from Western partners. However, these situations need to be corrected.

Against the backdrop of recent scandals in Ukraine, many may have doubts whether the West will stop helping Ukraine. About this topicMP Yaroslav Zheleznyak spoke to Channel 24.

Will the West continue to help Ukraine

According to Zheleznyak, the West will definitely provide assistance to Ukraine to resist the Russian invaders. So far, various scandals have not affected this situation.

Look, they will definitely help us so that we survive the war. Here, thank God, our corrupt officials have not yet distorted the perception. But I remind you that after the victory and now we need to restore the country. And, if you have at least some doubts that the dismissal of Mr. Tymoshenko is connected only with the internal situation, then no, – said Zheleznyak.

He assumes that in the near future the Deputy Head of the Office will also leave his post President Oleg Tatarov. Or it can happen in other ways. For example, as it was done with the odious Ukrainian oligarchs.

It should be noted!Oleg Tatarov is a former Interior Ministry official during Viktor Yanukovych's presidency. He served as deputy head of the Main Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs – head of the department for organizing control over the investigation of crimes during the events of the Revolution of Dignity. At the same time, he publicly covered the issues of detention of protesters and covered the situation from the side of the police.

Zheleznyak stressed that no one will turn a blind eye to the theft of funds. He hinted that some officials had already managed to get hold of not only Ukrainian money, but also foreign ones. touched … Some of our officials managed to steal not only Ukrainian money, but also foreign ones. For example, in storage of various nuclear pieces. They need to be wary that liability will come in other jurisdictions. You can see how this happens on the example of the same Firtash,” Zheleznyak noted.
