Zelenskyy has neither army nor police, he is surrounded by corrupted predators

Summary of Disinformation

Zelenskyy’s story is a tragedy of a good smart person who found himself in an awful situation. He has neither army nor police, and is surrounded by predatory officials. Zelenskyy’s anti-corruption legislative initiatives have turned 99% of officials against him.


No evidence given. This message is a conspiracy consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukrainian statehood.

President Zelenskyy is the Commander in Chief of the Ukrainian Army. There have been no statements made by President Zelenskyy or his representatives concerning alleged insubordination of certain military units or law-enforcement agencies to Zelenskyy's legal decisions.

See previous cases questioning Zelenskyy's authority over the Ukrainian Army here and here and alleging that Zelenskyy continues a monstrous experiment to turn Ukrainians into the enemies of Russians.
