To every leader comes a great deal of responsibility. President Volodymyr Zelensky was elected to be the leader of Ukraine, and President Trump had spoken to him on the corruption within his country. This was the number one issue the two leaders shared. We elected President Trump to clean up the corruption led by the “Deep State,” and President Zelensky had his own “Deep State” to clean up. President Zelensky is working to rid of over 500 prosecutors who corrupted the system within his country.
This would be a good thing except for the fact one of the prosecutors is in close contact with Rudy Giuliani. This prosecutor and a few others have the knowledge and the information to clear President Trump and prove the evil scheme with the Bidens, which Giuliani and President Trump was trying to uncover. The fear comes into play, knowing President Zelensky is only looking out for cleaning house. Still, the question remains, how will this affect the investigations? It brings about another obstacle for Trump to overcome and puts the Ukraine president in a bind.
The prosecutors are in the crosshairs of Zelensky, and the number one is Kostiantyn H. Kulyk. He had handed over a seven-page letter to Giuliani with all the ammunition to burn the Bidens. Now that Zelensky has removed him, Kulyk is denying he had any knowledge and refused to comment. Good thing for Giuliani and Trump, the words are in writing, and there is no turning back. Zelensky terminated Kulyk for not showing up for an examination to review all of the prosecutors within Ukraine. Zelensky replaced Kulyk with prosecutor general Ruslan Ryaboshapka and is treated like Zelensky’s right-hand man in clearing up the corruption within the nation.
The prosecutor general’s office stated there are precisely 569 prosecutors who do not meet the standards reviewed by the office, and at the end of this year, will be terminated. Ryaboshapka’s office will continue to audit the investigations and carry his own against the natural gas company, Burisma, and the Bidens.
The Director of Anti-Corruption Action Center, Daria Kaleniuk, stated, “Ryaboshapka is in a hard situation. Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma, has to be investigated for alleged self-dealing that predated Hunter Biden’s association with the company, including how Burisma was awarded several extraction licenses while its owner was Ukraine’s natural resources minister from 2010 until 2012.”
She continued, “I cannot imagine anything he can do that would not be interpreted as a political sign by American journalists. Any decision will be politically examined.”
A western diplomat stated, “Zelensky realizes that if he wants to survive, he needs to make some reforms. Nasty U.S. politics are kind of spilling over and corrupting Ukraine. And we have a credibility problem because we rely on our norms to be an example. The Ukrainians say, ‘Who are you to lecture us?’ There isn’t the same sort of pressure.”
President Zelensky is known as an entertainer and a comedian. He promised on the hopes of the Ukrainian people for a revolution to new standards. Ukraine citizens were tired of corruption within the government and voted Zelensky in office. So far, within three months, Zelensky has shown his people he is working for a better tomorrow and runs the country like President Trump runs America. He is moving quickly before any political support vanishes. Zelensky is learning from America how fast the government can divide when removing corruption. The evil ones will always fight tooth and nail to cover their tracks of deceit.
President Trump and President Zelensky also share the same compassion for their countries. This is one of the biggest reasons so much is getting done in a short amount of time. One senior Western diplomat stated, “Zelensky told me, ‘It’s morally wrong for people to be dying and for all this wealth to be around.’ It’s the first time in all these years I’ve heard an official really talk that way. To be so genuinely appalled.” He added, “The big question remains, ‘Can they hold oligarchs at arm’s length?'”
An anti-corruption campaigner, Halyna Yanchenko, stated, “A year ago, I would not even dream that just in a year the main part of our anti-corruption agenda would already be passed by the parliament. So I am very optimistic.”
Cleaning out his own country can make a better nation for his people. Still, in doing so, Zelensky is depriving President Trump’s case. Only time will tell the outcome for both parties.
