KYIV NOT KIEV: Zelenskyy’s Reforms; Saakashvili Returns to UA Politics; and Anti-Kolomoisky Bill
“I have never seen any episode of the “Servant of the People” TV series, but it seems like I live in the one,” Tetiana Gaiduk commented to the Argentinian newspaper “La Nacion” following the elections last year. So, together with Polina Boichuk, the girls from the TRUMAN Agency team discuss if President Zelenskyy is that similar to reformist president Holoborodko from the movie. Among other hot stories of the week were the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili to the position of the Head of the Executive Committee of Reforms and the Parliament’s vote for the so called anti-Kolomoisky bill, despite the record 16,000 amendments submitted to hinder the process.
