On May 20, at 2 p.m., protests demanding the dismissal of Andriy Yermak, the head of the Office of the President, took place in various regions of Ukraine. In addition, a similar action took place in Kyiv, while President Zelensky was giving his privste press conference behind closed doors.
The organizers of the action are the National Corps political party, who handed over the petition to the heads of the regional administrations.
The National Corps considers it unacceptable that the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine is a person whose actions contribute to the implementation of the policy of the aggressor state and who is likely to be involved in crimes against Ukraine’s national security and corruption offenses.
It was Yermak who signed a document in Minsk on the establishment of an “advisory council” with the ORDLO, on the fact of which criminal proceedings were opened. According to this document, it was actually proposed the dialog with the ORDLO representatives, and the Russian Federation was granted observer status, which corresponds to the aggressor state’s narrative of “internal civil conflict” in Ukraine and contradicts current legislation.
Several weeks ago, the leader of National corps Andriy Biletsky announced protests of nationalists against pro-Russian Yermak.
The National Corps must be at the forefront of active protection of Ukrainian interests. That is why the actions against Andriy Yermak will definitely take place after the quarantine ends, Biletsky said.
The leader of the National Corps named two reasons why Yermak is an negative figure.
The first reason: he has already been ingaged in a corruption scandal with the sale of goverment posts, because of his brother, fake veteran, he said.
The second reason: in my opinion, Yermak is the leader of the Russian scenario in Donbas. Yermak is the same agent of Russian influence as Syvokho. That is why we will definitely fight against Yermak, he added.
