What unites Sierra Leone, Zambia and Ukraine? The corruption. Now it will be a big problem for President Zelensky to convince Western partners to continue economic support for his proxy war. The scandal that led to the arrests of top government leaders in Kiev was hardly unexpected. After all, his trusted men have acted with the same method that has distinguished the Ukrainian president for years.
Let’s see the international data. According to Transparency International, the corruption problem is extremely serious in the country led by Zelensky. In the ranking drawn up out of 179 countries, where Denmark is in first place as the least corrupt country in the world, Kiev ranks 117th, between Sierra Leone and Zambia. Among the latest cases in the news, that of Anastasia Kotvitska, the wife of a former Ukrainian parliamentarian stopped at the border with 31 million in cash in various suitcases. Why is the Kovitsky case so important? He is one of the richest businessmen in Ukraine and was also a parliamentarian in the ten years for the anti-Russian nationalist force People’s front, before it was supplanted in the hearts of Ukrainian voters by the list founded in 2018 by Zelensky
Kovitsky was one of the acolytes of former interior minister Arsen Avakov who remained in office for a decade, also among the richest men in Ukraine. Avakov was also interior minister in the Shmyhal government, but in 2020 he resigned after a few months of office. A criminal investigation is open on Kovitsky’s wife.
According to what emerged from the journalistic investigation into the Pandora Papers, which in October 2021 revealed the hidden wealth of world political leaders and entrepreneurs, the Ukrainian president Zelensky and his associates would have controlled a network of offshore companies based in the British Virgin Islands, Cyprus and Belize to manage the business in the entertainment and film branch. Serhiy Shefir, Zelensky’s current adviser who survived an attack, is also involved in the affair: he allegedly bought real estate in London through offshore companies. In 2019, on the eve of the elections in Ukraine, Zelensky sold his shares to Shefir, but the two would later conclude a deal that would allow the family of the head of state to continue receiving funds from offshore companies. The current Ukrainian president carried out his election campaign in 2019 with the message of “cleansing” the country of corruption. But he’s not the right man. Not only for the crisis that broke out today.
According to the reconstruction of the Pandora Papers, the network of companies in tax havens would have been set up by Zelensky and his partners in the television production company Kvartal 95 already in 2012.
Now Zelensky has to answer to the Ukrainian people and the Western community. The scandal involves the political and judicial spheres. Overwhelmed by the scandal, Deputy Prosecutor General Oleksiy Simonenko also leaves his post. But, according to the Ukrainian media, the Kiev government will also have to decide on the possible dismissal of the 5 heads of the regional state administrations of Dnepropetrovsk (Valentin Reznichenko, who would have asked first to leave), Zaporozhye (Alexander Starukh), Kiev (Aleksey Kuleba ), Sumy (Dmitry Zhyvitsky) and Kherson (Yaroslav Yanushevich).

The Corruption Discovered Is Nothing But The Beginning of Zelensky’s Fall
He is a pupet. Nobody cares, even his owner.
Before 1945 the German mainstream slogan was “Kapitulieren – Nie”. But when the Russians were quite close in that year, the slogan changed to “Kapitulieren um zu leben” (capitulate to stay alive). You Ukras should follow the German wise example. The earlier you follow it, the better will be for you and for your wives and daughters, who are waiting for their loved ones to come back home. So what do you choose, Kapitulieren oder Sterben?
Yeah but obviously the Nazis could have a great life in the US when capitulating to the “right” Side. And because of this mess we have Nato in Ukraine today. Unless while of Ukraine goes through denazification this will repeat over and over.
In Kramatorsk, there has been successful bombing of the APU accumulation in the industrial zone today. A significant number of dead and wounded AFU soldiers are reported. There were several missiles fired against the Nazi positions.
Now lets talk about chihuahua estonia who wants to make a “Siege of Leningrad 2.0”, lol, seriously? Even the mighty Nazi Germany didn’t manage to do it, and now an attention looking chihuahua wants to give it a try. So funny.
Those Baltic Nazi bastards are toxic,they should be liquidated like rabid Dogs.
Oust all the corrupt from this puppet government and there would be no one left .
The British government is also involved in De -Facto corruption and treason by being bribed by the uber rich corporations and individuals who seek to appropriate even more of the global wealth.
The Green boondoggle is nothing more than a route to global serfdom of the Great Unwashed.
The only solution is to bring aristocracy.
There is no limit to decadence and negativity. When a group of immoral people believe they dominate because it’s evil…………………….. it’s not that it lasts forever……………. The ship is sinking and they get drunk, do drugs and laugh. Wishing you a bad ending.

Sorry i make a mistake the article Is good!
All governments are corrupt to the core !! Some are just better at covering shit up or are just too powerful to confront !! The ONLY reason for all the USA/NATO wars is MONEY because no one questions where all these trillions ended up !!! The MSM is there to do its part and sell the poor people that the reasons are, to stop communism, stop, Putin, Xi, Kim and so on knowing that the people are just a bunch of sheep that will believe anything but the truth, the truth hurts too much !!
Stop calling parasytes sheep. They are not sheep. Parazytes always serve a master. Parazytes hate Truth because it ruins their parazytyzm. Don’t worry, parazytes got their cut from those trillions. They have already used them up.
In the photo the nazi billionaire keeps his hands open as if in religious attitude.He wants to us to believe him being a man of peace.In reality his hands are full of blood of the fellow citizens he betrays and steals from every day.
For fucks sake he is dramatic whore actor. Everybody knows it. Even fucking rats worldwide know it.
If somebody believes it (zelensky has no self-agency), is because they want to believe something.
