The deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, has requested Zelenskyy to relieve him of his duties.

“I thank the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy for the trust and the opportunity to do good deeds every day and every minute,” Tymoshenko wrote on the Telegram messaging app.

President Zelenskyy says personnel changes are being carried out at senior and lower levels, following the most high-profile corruption allegations since Russia’s invasion.

In an overnight address, Zelenskyy did not identify the officials to be replaced, and said part of the crackdown would involve toughening oversight on travelling abroad for official assignments.
