Zelensky gives key job to top Yanukovych prosecutor’s daughter

President Volodymyr Zelensky on Sept. 30 appointed to the High Council of Justice a daughter of a top prosecutor who served ex-President Viktor Yanukovych, preferring her to several candidates with a reputation for integrity.

Zelensky’s appointment of Oksana Blazhyvska has triggered indignation among anti-corruption activists. She is a daughter of Yevhen Blazhyvsky, an ex-deputy of Yanukovych’s infamous Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka. Moreover, Blazhyvska has violated professional ethics and integrity standards and asset declaration rules, according to the AutoMaidan anti-corruption watchdog, the Anti-Corruption Action Center, the DEJURE legal think tank and Transparency International Ukraine.

Blazhyvska and the Presidential Office did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

    • All the Yanu traitors are no released under Clown Zeny or are getting jobs………………………I rest my case!

      • I can’t believe this is happening. Zelensky says he will fight corruption but then he doesn’t speak with journos and gives jobs to people that aren’t qualified for it. Just like Hunter Biden, take the money and don’t do anything.

What is your opinion?
