FAST FIVE: Zelensky Rejects Ukrainian PM's Resignation After Embarrassing 'Mystery' Audio Surfaces
Zelensky Rejects Ukrainian PM's Resignation After Embarrassing 'Mystery' Audio Surfaces At a sensitive moment that Trump-Ukraine dealings are being spotlighted in US politics and just before Senate impeachment proceedings move forward which the president has called a “hoax” – it just so happens that explosive wiretap recordings of top Ukrainian government officials are being mysteriously released to shake up the Zelensky administration.
No less than Ukraine's prime minister has resigned after he was caught on an audio recording allegedly making disparaging comments about Zelensky's ability to understand and form economic policy.
Honcharuk is allegedly caught in the recording saying his boss President Zelensky “has a very primitive understanding of economic processes.” The alleged recording surfaced earlier this week and immediately sparked controversy; however, it remains unclear as to the ultimate source of the audio's creation and leak. PM Honcharuk affirmed it is his voice on the audio, but suggested it was heavily edited to create a false impression.
“But this is not true.” No decision yet from Zelensky on Honcharuk's resignation.
After some dirty antireformer tries to expose PM Honcharuk with a mildly embarrassing tape recording, Honcharuk correctly offered his resignation & @ZelenskyyUa rightly turned it down.
