According to President Volodymyr Selenskyj All heads of regional military replacement offices in Ukraine have been dismissed. On Friday, Zelensky referred to suspicions of corruption on the short messaging service Telegram. “This system must be run by people who really know what war means and why skepticism and corruption in times of war mean treason,” the head of state said in a video speech. A total of 112 criminal proceedings have already been initiated against employees of military replacement offices.
The case of the already dismissed head of the military service in the Black Sea region of Odessa had previously attracted special attention. It is said that since the beginning of the war he took bribes and earned the equivalent of several million euros. For example, for documents of ineligibility for military service and provisions, the prices paid are said to be several thousand euros.
