President Volodymyr Zelensky demands that Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov dismiss the Chief of Police of the Dnipropetrovsk region Vitaliy Glukhoveria. The State Bureau of Investigation investigates a possible excess of official authority.
Volodymyr Zelensky, “I demand from the Minister of Internal Affairs, Mr Arsen Avakov, to immediately dismiss Mr Vitaliy Glukhoveria from the current position and Mr Roman Truba to investigate the facts made public.”
The reason for Zelensky’s indignation was the video published on the Internet of the incident when the special forces “KORD” detained patrol officers who stopped the car of Vitaliy Glukhoveria’s driver for violating traffic rules. “I am shocked at the cynical behaviour of representatives of the old elite, who are really convinced that they, along with their service staff, are above the law. After watching the video, I was tongue-tied,” Zelensky said.
