Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has summarily dismissed the heads of the country’s military services, Reuters and others reported on Nov. 11 local time.
In a statement via Telegram following a meeting with key law enforcement and security agencies earlier in the day, President Zelensky said that an audit of the National Military Service had revealed instances of abuse of authority, including fraudulent hoarding and arranging for conscripts to flee the country.
In particular, it pointed out that the recruitment system should be run by people who know exactly what war is and why cynicism and bribery during wartime is treason.
It added that new recruitment chiefs should have combat experience and pass a background check by the Security Service.
Law enforcement officials have launched investigations into 112 allegations based on the audit findings.
In Ukraine, allegations of corruption surfaced in June, with one military chief’s family holding millions of dollars worth of cars and assets in Spain.
President Zelensky immediately dismissed the military chief and ordered a joint committee of the country’s law enforcement agencies 카지노사이트넷 and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau to launch an audit of the country’s military services.
