The Great Game. 22 May 2019. Topic: Zelensky's first appointments23.05.2019 |
Zelensky takes charge: Igor Kolomoisky’s attorney is appointed presidential chief of staff, and the general who led his troops into the Ilovaisk pocket is appointed commander-in-chief.
The new president wants to put the question of peace talks up for a referendum, and he plans to use a carrot-and-stick approach with Russia. The parliament rejects Zelensky’s bill, and people on the streets are getting restless. This is the new reality of Ukrainian politics.
