Zelensky fired his assistant Shefir

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky fired his first assistant Serhiy Shefir, as well as several advisers and commissioners. Decrees about this were published In the evening on Friday and in the morning on Saturday.

Shefir is a co-founder of Studio Kvartal-95, played in the KVN team “Zaporozhye – Krivoy Rog – Transit”, where Zelensky also performed. He was the producer of the series “Servant of the People,” in which Zelensky played the role of the President of Ukraine. Subsequently, he was one of the leaders of Zelensky’s election headquarters; he was appointed to the position of first assistant in 2019, after Zelensky’s victory in the elections.

The President of Ukraine also dismissed two deputy heads of the Office of the President Andrei Yermak – Andrei Smirnov and Alexey Dneprov – and appointed Irina Mudraya and Elena Kovalskaya in their place. Zelensky dismissed Oleg Ustenko, Sergei Trofimov and Mikhail Radutsky from the posts of freelance advisers, Alena Verbitskaya was fired from the post of Presidential Commissioner for the Rights of Defenders of Ukraine, and Natalya Pushkareva was fired from the post of Presidential Commissioner for Volunteer Activities.

The reasons for the resignations are not officially reported.

A few days earlier, the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Alexei Danilov, was fired, and even earlier, in early March, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny. Then Zelensky announced the need for a “big reset” of power.

  • The Ukrayinska Pravda publication notes that the latest sociolonic surveys in the country show that the level of distrust in government institutions exceeds the level of trust. Elections in Ukraine are not held under martial law, so the president is trying to “reboot” the authorities through personnel changes. According to Ukrainskaya Pravda, Zelensky informed the now fired officials about his decision on March 21-22. They were reportedly asked what positions they would like to occupy. It is known that Danilov has been offered the post of ambassador to Moldova. “Ukrainian Truth” believesthat the dismissal of officials, especially Shefir, increases the influence of the head of the Presidential Office Andriy Yermak, one of the key people in Zelensky’s entourage.
