Zelensky's administration reports imminent resignations of Ukraine’s Foreign and Defense Ministers

Speaking on the air of NEWSONE, representative of President-elect Vladimir Zelensky, Dmitry Razumkov, said that he would not exclude the high likelihood that Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin and Minister of Defense Stepan Poltorak will resign.

He said he was 99% convinced that after Zelensky officially assumes power the ministers will have to leave.

Razumkov also said that Zelensky’s team will insist on the resignation of the current Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko. He reminded the audience that the current Prosecutor General must at the very least have a degree in law.

Earlier, Klimkin approached Zelensky and offered to resign. According to the minister, he will make the offer first and leave the final decision to the President, since "it is necessary to have a respect for political culture.”
