The president should not meet people with such a reputation as billionaire Ihor Kolomoysky as American professor and Anders Aslund and specialist on Eastern Europe said to Novoe Vremia commending the recent meeting of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and oligarch.
“I am really embarrassed by the figure of Ihor Kolomoysky and his meeting with President Zelensky. In my opinion, the president should not meet the person with such reputation,” Aslund said.
“But he does and the question appears: why? The president is so weak that he could not refuse to meet? Or he does not understand the intention of Kolomoysky? Everybody knows who Kolomoysky is!,” he stated.
