We have a strategy for building a state - to prevent the county from falling apart into principalities, not to allow even one iota of reasons for federalizing our country. These are also the principles with which we went to the polls: legality, the fight against corruption, human life as the highest value and person as a priority for the state," Yermak said.

He added that he was ready to work with every mayor that the people would choose.

According to Yermak, during the visit of Zelensky to the Khmelnytsky region, the president of Ukraine called the "anti-Ukrainians" and "separatists" those mayors who, in the struggle for power, are violating the law, deliberately sabotaging any cooperation with the Cabinet of Ministers.

“If a person is popular with his residents, acts within the framework of the current legislation is not connected with any corruption scandals, or with the crime, the president is ready to build normal relations with such leaders. Because this is a chosen position. People have chosen a person,” Andriy Yermak said.

However, he noted that in this case, Zelensky spoke about the mayor of Cherkasy.

"The president simply spoke openly and did not let the dogs down, as was done before. They (the criminal cases, - ed.) The mayor of Cherkasy had before. They were no more. And people will give an assessment of his actions in the local elections," – Head of President’s Office said.

He added that the mayor should be professional, honest, and efficient.

As we reported before, Law enforcement authorities called for questioning of the mayor of Cherkasy Anatoly Bondarenko because of the premature mitigation of quarantine in the city. The lockdown was introduced earlier in connection with the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19.
