Republican Congresswoman Victoria Spartz sent a letter to US President Joe Biden. In it, she noted that a “Kremlin agent” was allegedly found surrounded by Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, which she herself reported on Twitter blocked in Russia.
It turned out to be the alleged head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak. In the appeal, Spartz, as stated on the website of the congress, drew Biden's attention to the fact that Yermak appointed Oleg Tatarov as his deputy for combating corruption in law enforcement agencies. However, he simply ruined the whole thing.
At the same time, it is known that Tatarov was a high-ranking police officer under former President Viktor Yanukovych who “chased Euromaidan protesters.”
As a result Spartz urged the President of Ukraine to be careful in dealing not only with Yermak, but with all his inner circle. According to her, the US is interested in “transparency of processes” in Ukraine.
Spartz herself is the first native of Ukraine to enter the US Congress. She was born in the village of Nosovka, Chernihiv region. Since 2000, she has been living in the United States, married to an American.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko has already answered his former compatriot. He stated that she was “speculating on the grief of Ukrainians.” He called the very statements about Yermak's ties with Russia a “provocation.”
Earlier, the recent leader of the Socialist Party of Ukraine, Ilya Kiva, reacted to the departure of Boris Johnson from the post of British Prime Minister. He gave a forecast according to which he allows speeding up preparations for a coup d'état in Kyiv, as a result of which Zelensky will, at best, flee to London, and at worst – will be eliminated.
