"I do not like the atmosphere, the building. So we'll think what to do about it,” he noted.

Speaking of the newly appointed Head of the President’s Administration, many observers, “including Tomas Fiala, CEO of the Kyiv-based investment company Dragon Capital - expressed doubt that Bogdan would work for the benefit of Ukraine and not Kolomoysky.”

"I don't know who Fiala is, he's not holding any state office so it's unclear on what grounds he's commenting. They are calling us every day, they want to invest the money as long as the president and the government can guarantee their rights are protected - that's our weak link. This is the main reason why investors will invest or not," he said. "It really has nothing to do with Bogdan," Zelensky reacted.

Volodymyr Zelensky assumed the office and became the sixth president of Ukraine. The solemn ceremony of inauguration took place in Kyiv on Monday, May 20. The new head of the state greeted the audience that welcomed him at Mariinsky Park in the downtown Kyiv. Zelensky passed the improvised corridor in the park, shaking hands and taking selfies with his supporters. The head of the state made the oath the traditional way, with his right hand on Peresopnytsia Gospels and the Constitution of Ukraine.
