  1. “Regarding the issue raised in the petition, I note that by Decree of the President of Ukraine dated June 25, 2019, No. 434 A.Bohdan was dismissed from the post of head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine,”

    If there was a presidential decree, how come the people and the journalists weren’t informed of it? How come Bogdan was still speaking with that authority and telling the journalists it was Fake News until today? Zelensky is losing his political capital fast.

  2. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has approved the regulation on the Presidential Office, signing relevant decree No. 436/2019 on Tuesday, the presidential website said.

    As reported, Zelensky established the Presidential Office by reorganizing and reducing the number of employees of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine (Decree No. 417/2019 of June 20).

    Andriy Bohdan was appointed head of the Presidential Office (decree No. 435/2019); by another decree (No. 434/2019) he was dismissed from his post as head of the presidential administration.

    First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Serhiy Trofymov, Deputy Heads of the Presidential Administration Oleksiy Honcharuk, Yuriy Kostiuk, Vadym Prystaiko, Ruslan Riaboshapka, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, and Oleksiy Dneprov were reassigned to the relevant positions in the Presidential Office.

    Zenny changed the name of the function of Bohdan from head of the Presidential Administration, and apponted on the same day as Head of the Presidential Office, the same job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Zenny lied!

  3. The Illusionist! Slight of hand. Wave your right hand with a colored ribbon to distract attention from what the left is up to. Ever wonder why a magician always has a beautiful assistant in skimpy outfit. Part of the distract your eyes as they parade about. The illusionist can get away with something else.

What is your opinion?
