President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky announced a change in the country’s defense minister. Alexey Reznikov’s place should be taken by the head of the State Property Fund, Rustem Umerov. The appointment must still be approved by the Verkhovna Rada.
“Alexei Reznikov has held his post for more than 550 days of a full-scale war. In my opinion, the ministry needs new approaches and other formats of interaction with both the military and society as a whole,” Zelensky explained his decision. It was made after several corruption scandals in the department and the system of military commissars, which were not formally subordinate to the minister.
