President Volodymyr Zelensky may have lost much of his control over the Servant of the People faction, the party itself, and even over its own office. MP Anton Polyakov, who was expelled from the Servant of the People faction, in an interview with Glavkom, stated this.
According to him, he used to believe that “the president is simply in the information cocoon,” but now Zelensky simply can’t “fundamentally change the situation and figure out” everything.
“What is happening clearly does not fit into the picture that I saw for myself in the presidential and parliamentary elections. I could not imagine that this would happen,” the MP noted.
Polyakov emphasized that when he was kicked out, he asked for a meeting at the faction, but "received zero reaction."
Of course, the MP notes, Zelensky can be given information in different ways, "put a comma or an emphasis in the wrong place - and you already seem to be not a friend, but an enemy."
Nevertheless, Polyakov believes that he doubts that the president "does not see and does not hear."
“There are two options: either he just can not influence the situation to such an extent, avoids any specifics, or he understands, no matter what he does, then it will play a minus for him and the faction,” Polyakov says.
As we reported, Ukrainian lawmakers Anna Skorokhod and Anton Polyakov have been excluded from Servant of the People parliamentary faction.
